Acoustic models at SACLANTCEN
The Environmental Modelling Group at SACLANTCEN maintains a suite of computer codes to model sound propagation in the ocean. This suite contains numerical models to cover all environmental conditions and acoustic frequencies of interest at the present time. New models will be added if requested or as they become available to supplement the existing ones. Any specific model has its range of applicability in the domain of acoustic and environmental parameters as well as with regard to computer facilities and time.This document aims to provide a brief characterization of the programs, and thus to give the potential user an overview of the capabilities currently available. However, to run any of these models the user will have to resort to the original User Manuals. The models covered are: COUPLE, FEPE, GRASS, GSM, KRAKEN, MOCASSIN, PAREQ, SAFARI, SNAP and those includedin the respective program packages. Additional auxiliary programs CONTUR,FIPPLOT, and PULSEPLOT for displaying the modelling results and integrating them with other data are also described.
