Abstract:

Volume 1 of this report discussed the shallow water acoustic model. The theoretical basis underlying the model and the implementation of the model through a computer program were described. Volume 2 will describe the present status of the validation procedure for the model. First comparisons with other models through the use of standard cases are described second comparisons are made with actual data. The primary purpose of the comparisons with other models is to test the mathematics of the calculations employed in the model. The primary purpose of the comparisons with actual data is to test the physical assumptions inherent in the model.
