Abstract

Effect of anisotropy on the average bit error rate (BER) is investigated when an asymmetrical Gaussian beam is propagated in an anisotropic turbulent ocean. BER is found to decrease in response to an increase in anisotropy levels in the x and y directions. Higher average signal-to-noise ratio, wavelength, and microscale length yield smaller BER values. BER starts to rise with an increase in the asymmetrical beam source size in the x and y directions, source size ratio in the x and y directions, salinity and temperature contribution factor, the dissipation of the mean squared temperature, and the propagation distance. At the fixed source size ratio in the x and y directions of the asymmetrical beam source size, larger source sizes increase BER. An anisotropic turbulent ocean seems to exhibit better BER values as compared with an isotropic turbulent ocean.
