Abstract:

The long-term goal is to understand, characterize, and predict lateral and vertical, naturally-occurring heterogeneities that may produce discrete acoustic returns at low grazing angles i.e., geologic clutter in a mid-outer shelf test site off the U.S. New Jersey. Also, conduct precise acoustic reverberation experiments at this site to understand, characterize, and potentially mitigate the geologic clutter, so that the false alarms, or detects, of tactical sonar systems encountered in this marine geologic environment around the world can be characterized properly.
