This Research Report presents some of the equations of underwater acoustics that relate to the signal excess noise received by a transducer. The basic structural equation is developed, as are defining equations for each term in that equation. An analysis is performed utilizing typical values to ascertain if the elements of the structural equation can be simplified. Results delineate that several terms of that equation can be neglected while maintaining a relative high degree of accuracy.
