ABSTRACT

A methods for the solution of the "inverse problem", i. e., the problem of reconstruction of the ocean stratification data on the basis of the known dispersion equations and the dispersion curves for the internal gravity waves, is suggested in the paper. Setting the values of the vibration frequencies and wave numbers with different degree of accuracy and simulating the character of stratification within the piecewise-linear approximation, we show the accuracy with which the reconstruction is possible and establish the limits of sensitivity for the measuring equipment.
