CONPLT, a program to generate contours from HARPO/HARPA environmental models by J. A Harlan( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We describe a FORTRAN computer program, CONPLT, that will generate plotting-command files for contour plots of the environmental models (e.g., sound speed, current or wind velocity, temperature) used with the acoustic ray tracing programs HARPO (underwater acoustics) and HARPA (atmospheric acoustics). Contours of environmental model parameters can be obtained in any vertical or horizontal slice through three-dimensional models. A companion report, PSGRAPH -- a Plotting Program for PC-HARPO, PROFILE, CONPLT and EIGEN, describes an associated computer program that produces PostScript files as well as screen graphics for PC-compatible computers. We include a floppy disk with computer programs and a sample case. Also included are instructions for obtaining the programs (with updates via Internet

Groundwave height-gain functions near a shoreline by R. Michael Jones( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A saddlepoint approximation to a Kirchhoff integration over the surface of the Earth is used to derive formulas for the groundwave field for an elevated observer near a shoreline. It is shown that the transition from homogeneous groundwave propagation to mixed-path groundwave propagation occurs not at a vertical plane above the shoreline, but rather at an oblique surface tilted in the direction of propagation. Thus, close enough to the shoreline and high enough, the field over land (for sea-to-land propagation) will not be affected by the land beneath the observer, so that the field is represented in terms of sea-type groundwave modes (with the associated height-gain functions) even though the observer is above the land. This phenomenon is explained by interpreting groundwave modes as ground-reflected waves. There is a transition region (of several hundred kilometers horizontally for HF propagation) where diffractive corrections must be made because of the location of the shoreline
