Abstract:

The long-term goals of this work are to develop a practical model for predicting reverberation level RL, echo-reverberation ratio and reverberation vertical coherence RVC in shallow water to characterize seabottom geoacoustic parameters sound speed and attenuation and scattering function from high quality reverberation data in a frequency range of 100-2000Hz.
