In an effort to solve the forward propagation problem associated with the 1992 Barents Sea Polar Front Experiment Tomography Test, the transmission of a 224 Hz pulse signal from a near bottom sound source to a vertical hydrophone array was simulated based on three-dimensional ray theory. based on three- dimensional ray theory. Through numerical raytracing, followed by eigenray searches and estimations of ray amplitudes, searches and estimations of ray amplitudes, phases and travel times, the arrival structure as a function of time and elevation angle was constructed. The simulation was performed for both a two-dimensional and three-dimensional modeled ocean environment in order to examine the significance of three-dimensional effects. The predicted arrival structures compare well with the observed data. Three-dimensional effects proved to be significant only for the latest arrivals
