"There are in existence today some reasonably good numerical procedures for predicting sound velocity, but these procedures require that certain initial data such as temperature and salinity be given before a sound velocity may be computed. Eliminating the need for on-location observations of temperature and salinity, which are used in computing sound velocity, was the primary objective of this study. Stepwise multiple regression was applied in the search for suitable models to predict temperature and salinity, and ultimately sound entirely in terms of controllable variables, such as latitude, longitude, depth, and day-of-year"--Abstract, page ii.
