Morphological approaches to understanding Antarctic Sea ice thickness
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)
Sea ice thickness has long been an under-measured quantity, even in the satellite era. The snow surface elevation, which is far easier to measure, cannot be directly converted into sea ice thickness estimates without ...
Geoacoustic inversion by mode amplitude perturbation
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
This thesis introduces an algorithm for inverting for the geoacoustic properties of the seafloor in shallow water. The input data required by the algorithm are estimates of the amplitudes of the normal modes excited by a ...
