A large set of experimental acoustic broadband data in the 50-3200 Hz band is analyzed with the objective of deriving average geoacoustic models for three sites in the Strait of Sicily. The experimental data were obtained by using explosive charges as sound sources and a vertical array of hydrophones as the receiver. CW data at 3.5 kHz is also analyzed. The acoustic data is complemented by a set of oceanographic data and bathymetry measurements.
