Dates 1999|2003
Summary

The main objective of this project is to develop a new method for underwater acoustic tomography that uses as source signal the noise emitted by ships of opportunity, received on vertical arrays distributed along the coast, with the objective of measuring the water temperature and currents of oceanographic interest.
