Separation of measured noise coherence matrix into Toeplitz and Hankel parts
The cross-spectral density of ocean ambient noise is usually estimated from the product of the complex hydrophone signals, each of which already corresponds to the summed responses of sources from all angles. The true coherence is the integral over all angles of the angle-dependent product. The influence of this distinction on necessary time integration in geoacoustic inversion and passive fathometry is explored, and a meaningful separation of the cross-spectral density matrix into Toeplitz and Hankel parts is proposed. Various processing techniques are applied to synthesized data and some experimental vertical array data in a passive fathometry context. Passive fathometry is only sensitive to the Hankel part of the matrix.
