Preliminary results are presented from an analysis of mid-frequency acoustic transmission data collected at range during the Shallow Water 2006 Experiment. The acoustic data were collected on a vertical array immediately before, during, and after the passage of a nonlinear internal wave on 18 August, 2006. Using oceanographic data collected at a nearby location, a plane-wave model for the nonlinear internal wave’s position as a function of time is developed. Experimental results show a new acoustic path is generated as the internal wave passes above the acoustic source.
