The common goals are to 1 understand the acoustic scattering process in shallow water, with the objective of designing physics-based signal processing algorithms to distinguish naturally-occurring features e.g., iceberg scours, shallow gas accumulations, outcrops of high-amplitude shallow subsurface reflectors, shallowly-buried meandering channels which are ubiquitous on the worlds continental shelves, so-called geoclutter , from man-made targets of similar dimensions e.g., submarines, and 2 to predict the distribution and properties of geoclutter at a chosen U.S. continental margin test site, with eventual application to other continental shelves of Navy interest globally.
