LONG-TERM GOALS. The long-range objectives of this research are to develop efficient accurate tools for quantitative forward modeling in range dependent, bottom-interacting acoustic propagation including sediment anisotropy and anelasticty. OBJECTIVES. The specific objectives of this research are to develop practical theoretical and software tools for employing a fully elastic version of two-way coupled modes for modeling seismo-acoustic signals in shallow water with realistic elastic bottom properties, that may extend to elastically anisotropic sediment cover.
