Analysis of Swallow float data at SACLANTCEN: Software notes for future use and developments
A Swallow float is as a neutrally buoyant, freely drifting unit which is deployed in deep water, equipped with one pressure sensor (hydrophone) and three orthogonal particle velocity sensors (geophones) to measure acoustic intensity (magnitude and direction of the net acoustic energy flux density). This report summarizes the basic equation governing the analysis of Swallow float data. A description of the SACLANTCEN analysis software is included. The software was originally developed at the Marine Physical Laboratory, Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
