We report experiments and numerical simulations on the self-focusing and filamentation of ultraintense femtosecond Airy waveforms in water. The accelerating property of Airy waveforms results in the generation of distinct features in the angularly resolved spectra of forward-propagating supercontinuum emission. Fitting these features with appropriate phase-matching conditions allows for the quantification of the propagation history of the waveforms.
