Abstract:

The objective of this research is to improve understanding of bottom acoustic scattering at mid- and high-frequencies and to improve conventional algorithms for remote acoustic characterization of marine sediments. The primary scientific objective is to develop improved theoretical models for seabed scattering using approximations having a wider range of applicability than those presently available.
