Abstract:

The geoacoustic properties of the ocean bottom, including sound speed profiles, densities, attenuations and sediment layer depths, have a significant effect on sound propagation in shallow water. The long term goal of this work is to develop a new tomographic inversion method based on matched field processing for estimating geoacoustic properties.
