Summary:
Knowledge of the effects of sensor mislocation is necessary for interpreting the outputs from vertical acoustic receiver arrays deployed in the ocean. The first phase of this study consists of deriving a numerical method to determine the geometric shape of a flexible array cable, anchored at its upper end and displaced by horizontal ocean currents. Analytic methods to verify the numerical method are then derived. The second phase of this study considers measurements of a simple sound source by perturbed array cables. The results are compared with those from straight cables to ascertain the effect of the sensor mislocation. These effects are evaluated in terms of array cable curvature and tilt.
