dc.description.abstract Since the end of the Cold War, the US Navy has had an increasing interest in continental shelves and slopes as operational areas. To work in such areas requires a good understanding of ocean acoustics, coastal physical oceanography, and, in the modern era, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) operations. Each area presents challenges for both the scientist and the Navy. In physical oceanography, a complex interplay among winds, rivers, tides, and local bathymetry drives a non-stationary, shelf-break front and the nonlinear internal wave (NLIW) field. These strongly affect acoustic systems but are not adequately understood. A key oceanographic challenge is to model the fully four-dimensional ocean from the large-scale circulation down to fine scales, which include NLIW packets, internal tides, jets, and density fronts. Both Navy acoustics systems and Navy operations need the “local ocean weather” as well as the “ocean climate” as part of the routine forecast, but the former is not yet available. en_US
