The influence of wind-generated currents (offshore upwelling) on the formation of sound speed anomalies and their effect on the acoustic field configuration are considered. It is shown theoretically and confirmed experimentally that, depending on the acoustic traces orientation three types of acoustic illumination zone distortions are possible.
