Abstract : Carefully controlled and well documented measurements of downslope signal propagation were made in an ONR sponsored experiment in July 1989. Analysis of these data along with range dependent propagation model predictions shows that both downslope conversion and range variation of the sound speed structure are important propagation mechanisms coupling coastal shipping traffic noise into the sound channel.
