Abstract:

The long term science goals are to understand the nature of seabed variability at meso-scales O10expn 0 10expn3 m and determine how meso-scale structures impact acoustic propagation, diffuse reverberation, and clutter. The objectives are to develop new observational methods to quantify meso-scale seabed variability uncertainty and also develop modeling techniques to understand the impact of spatial variability on propagation and reverberation.
