By Calvin H. Wilcox

Stratified fluids whose densities, sound speeds and different parameters are services of a unmarried intensity coordinate happen generally in nature. certainly, the earth's gravitational box imposes a stratification on its surroundings, oceans and lakes. it really is popular that their stratification has a profound impact at the propagation of sound in those fluids. the main notable impact is one of the prevalence of acoustic ducts, because of minima of the sound pace, that could capture sound waves and make them propagate hori­ zontally. The mirrored image, transmission and distortion of sonar indications via acoustic ducts is necessary in reading sonar echoes. sign scattering through layers of microscopic marine organisms is critical to either sonar engi­ neers and marine biologists. back, mirrored image of indications from backside sediment layers overlying a penetrable backside are of curiosity either as resources of undesirable echoes and within the acoustic probing of such layers. Many different examples might be given. the aim of this monograph is to improve from first ideas a concept of sound propagation in stratified fluids whose densities and sound speeds are basically arbitrary capabilities of the intensity. In actual phrases, the propagation of either time-harmonic and brief fields is analyzed. The corresponding mathematical version ends up in the examine of boundary price difficulties for a scalar wave equation whose coefficients comprise the pre­ scribed density and sound velocity capabilities.
