Abstract:

The adoption of the bottom bounce mode of underwater sound propagation for sonar applications has made a consideration of ocean bottom sound reflectivity essential. The following discussion is an attempt to 1 Relate observed ocean bottom physical and acoustic properties, and 2 present a better theoretical approach for comparison with existing measurements than those previously employed.
