Abstract:

Compile geological data and develop methods to predict the distribution and properties of features hypothesized to be responsible for sonar geoclutter. Contribute to the reduction or mitigation of geologic clutter observed on fleet sonar systems. Two issues define the problem. In area x, can the Navy expect geoclutter features and if so what are their sonar characteristics, i.e. channel orientation If geoclutter features are expected in area x, will the feature be exposed or buried
