Abstract

Our studies are centered in an area south of the Shandong peninsula where the observations of Zhou, Zhang and Rogers [1] showed an anomalous drop in acoustical intensity at 630 Hz. For this region ocean-acoustic modeling studies are performed in conjunction with available SAR observations of internal solitary waves. Acoustic field intensity calculations show that for some frequencies a redistribution of acoustic energy to higher modes occurs.
