Pagination or Media Count:
Physically sound models of acoustic interaction with the ocean floor including penetration, reflection and scattering in support of MCM and ASW needs. 1 Consolidation of the BIC08 model of sediment acoustics, its verification in a variety of sediment types, parameter reduction and documentation in preparation for transition. 2 A new model of sediment reflection based on a mixture of models suitable for shallow water sonars. 3 Coupling of BIC08 to rough surface scattering models.
