This research investigates the scattering of an acoustic field from bubbles embedded in a fluid saturated sediment. The primary objective is the establishment of underlying physical mechanisms for resonance scattering near the monopole resonance. Bubbles are known to be present in naturally occurring sediments particularly in littoral regions, and it has been proposed that these bubbles are primary contributors to volume scattering of sediment penetrating sonars.
