Abstract
The Debye effect---electric and magnetic fields from the acceleration of seawater particles---is an unexplored submarine detection method that should be investigated for feasibility. It offers several potential advantages over other non-acoustic detection methods. The work proposed here will characterize the phenomenology, signal, and noise to determine tactical utility.
