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.
