Abstract:

The respone of vertical arrays at single frequencies CV and for homogeneous media is well known. This paper addresses the issues of frequency dependence and sound velocity gradients for the vertical array response in a deep ocean. I have modified the synthetic seismogram code of Neil Frazer, Subhashis Mallick and Dennis Lindwall to address this problem. The code uses a rearrangement of the Kennett reflectivity algorithm Kennett, 1974,1983 which computes the geoacoustic response for depth dependent media and pulse sources by the wave number integration method.
