Abstract:

Work on evaluation and verification of seafloor acoustic scattering models was conducted. The main thrust of our efforts was directed towards implementing specified seafloor surface statistics in the computer simulation environment. This allowed us to compare results derived from acoustic data collected at sea with results from synthetic data generated with the Sonar Simulation Toolset software package, using the design parameters of the sonar system actually used to obtain the measurements at sea.
