Abstract:

Empirical comparison of the two segment maximum likelihood f-k spectra with fast frequency domain beam f-k spectra FKCOMB, FKPLOT shows that the latter is more suitable for the separation of multiple signals if the amplitudes of the signals differ considerably. This advantage of the beaming process is attributed primarily to the stripping procedure, which has not been developed for the maximum likelihood spectra. The maximum likelihood f-k spectra, on the other hand, are less sensitive to the array response and easier to interpret, especially if the array used contains only a few elements, since the sidelobes of the array response are more confusing on the FKCOMB output of this case.
