Abstract: The main purpose of this internal report consists
in developing a general and brief discus- sion of technical and
experimental techniques of Ocean Acoustic Tomography, followed by a
simulated study of application in the sub-basin of the Portuguese
Exclusive Economic Zone (hereafter called as the Portuguese EEZ),
lasting between mainland Portugal and the AØcores and Madeira
archipelagos. The discussion will be based on a bibliographic review,
regarding proposed and/or experimental applications of Ocean Acoustic
Tomo- graphy to the monitoring of small (coastal), mesoscale, sub-basin
and basin areas of the ocean, corresponding to around 10 km, 100 km, 1
Mm, and more than 1 Mm ranges, respectively.
