By Calvin H. Wilcox

Stratified fluids whose densities, sound speeds and different parameters are services of a unmarried intensity coordinate ensue broadly in nature. certainly, the earth's gravitational box imposes a stratification on its surroundings, oceans and lakes. it really is renowned that their stratification has a profound impression at the propagation of sound in those fluids. the main extraordinary impact is without doubt one of the prevalence of acoustic ducts, as a result of minima of the sound pace, that may seize sound waves and lead them to propagate hori­ zontally. The mirrored image, transmission and distortion of sonar indications via acoustic ducts is necessary in examining sonar echoes. sign scattering by means of layers of microscopic marine organisms is critical to either sonar engi­ neers and marine biologists. back, mirrored image of signs from backside sediment layers overlying a penetrable backside are of curiosity either as assets of undesirable echoes and within the acoustic probing of such layers. Many different examples may be given. the aim of this monograph is to increase from first rules a idea of sound propagation in stratified fluids whose densities and sound speeds are primarily arbitrary capabilities of the intensity. In actual phrases, the propagation of either time-harmonic and brief fields is analyzed. The corresponding mathematical version results in the research of boundary price difficulties for a scalar wave equation whose coefficients comprise the pre­ scribed density and sound velocity capabilities.
