Acoustic noise interferometry in the ocean relies on synchronized measurements of ambient sound at spatially separated points to passively measure the acoustic travel times between receiver locations. A network of four autonomous, moored, near-bottom acoustic receivers were deployed in the vicinity of the New England Seamounts for 52 days as part of the larger New England Seamount Acoustics (NESMA) Pilot experiment. Receiver depths ranged from 2500–4475 m. The moored receivers provided stable observation platforms in a region with highly variable and occasionally strong currents. The noise interferometry network aimed to investigate the feasibility of utilizing passive acoustic remote sensing methods to study a highly dynamic ocean region with complex bathymetry. Strong ocean variability at the experimental site was induced by its proximity to the Gulf Stream. This paper presents the initial analysis of water-depth dependence and intermittency of ambient sound spectra and spectrograms on near-bottom receivers. The relation between the spectral features of ambient sound and ocean dynamics is explored. Additionally, the feasibility of using the onboard Chip Scale Atomic Clocks to synchronize the experimental data and calculate broadband noise cross-correlation functions for each of the receiver pairs is discussed.
