Abstract:

The long-term goals of this work are to contribute to the understanding of bottom backscatter at high frequencies, provide techniques for determining sediment characteristics based on backscatter, and to support experiments within the context of the high-frequency, underwater communications and bottom scattering experiments such as KauaiEx and SAX04. An additional goal, recently established for this project, is to contribute to an improved understand of shallow-subbottom backscatter at mid-range frequencies.
