Bubble distributions in the upper ocean.
Hiestand, Frank Hilty.
MetadataShow full item record
A bubble transport equation has been developed that the bubble distribution, as a function of position, velocity, and size, must satisfy. An analytical model for bubble transport in the upper ocean is chosen and solutions are developed for this model. For a surface source only, these solutions compare favorably to experimental data in the near-surface region. The depth of this region of agreement depends upon the circulation field chosen, but is of the order of 3 meters.

Chan, Eugene Joseph Pilpa (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 1999-03);This work reports experiments that show that the drag on a bubble can be modified by the presence of isotropic, homogeneous broadband acoustic noise, when the band overlaps the bubble's resonance width. This constitutes ...
