Abstract:

Several new and improved shallow-water normal-mode models have been developed to represent the shallow-water area encountered on the FASOR I and II cruises. These models include a linear gradient velocity profile, an Epstein velocity profile, and a profile with three linear gradient segments. In all cases a layered viscoelastic bottom is used. Generally good agreement is shown between the calculated and experimental measurements of propagation loss on the FASOR stations.
