Abstract:

The long-term goals of this work are to develop a theoretical model for predicting reverberation in shallow water, to derive small-angle seabed scattering strength, sound velocity and attenuation in sediments from reverberation and propagation data at low frequencies, and to understand the physical mechanisms of sea bottom scattering.
