Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS Development of a physical model of high-frequency acoustic interaction with the ocean floor, including penetration through and reflection from smooth and rough watersediment interfaces, scattering from the interface roughness and volume heterogeneities and propagation within the sediment. The model will aid in the detection and classification of buried mines and improve SONAR performance in shallow water.
