Abstract:

The long-term goal of this work is 1 to develop a reverberation model for predicting the reverberation level and the echo-to-reverberation ratio in shallow water SW in a frequency band of 100-3000 Hz, and 2 to analyze the mechanisms of seabed scattering at low frequencies LF. The objective is to set up a quality reverberation data base, to validate the SW reverberation model derived from the energy flux method , and to charaterize LF seabed scattering parameters.
