Abstract:

Shells and shell debris are common at the waterseafloor interface. Quantifying the scattering from shells is thus important for predicting high frequency backscattering from the seafloor. A backscattering experiment is described in which glass beads radius equal to 1.75 cm and shells largest dimension tip to about 10 cm were placed near a bottom-mounted sonar and backscattering examined as a function of the number of discrete scatterers Supported by Office of Naval Research - USA
