Abstract:In this paper we present the influence of ocean waves in shallow water scenarios which have geometric dimensions of about several times the acoustic wavelength. Typically, this concerns coastal zones. It is well known that ocean waves are a source of scattering, have dispersive behaviour, and that at low frequencies are a source of noise. We will base our work on measurements realized in shallow water conditions, an attempt to model ocean waves and include them in existing codes of acoustic propagation using finite difference schemes. Additionally, we will compare the differences between measurements and prediction models and try to discuss the reliability of the models for the Shallow water case.
