Abstract : The results of the High Frequency Acoustics Workshop, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research Code 3210A, are presented. The workshop was held on 16-18 April 1996 at the Ramada Inn in Golden, Colorado. The three principal objectives of the workshop were (1) to promote communication among the basic research investigators and between the 6.1 and 6.2 communities on high frequency acoustics issues, (2) to identify the fundamental scientific issues and to clarify important goals for research in high frequency acoustics, and (3) to suggest major field experiments that could address these goals. This report summarizes the scientific issues in high frequency acoustics and suggests research goals for field experiments in the following three areas: acoustic interaction with the sea surface, acoustic interaction with the sea floor, and acoustic propagation.
