Abstract:

The long-term goals of this work are to more fully understand high frequency scattering from complex and realistic seafloor environments. A more complete understanding will improve forward model predictions of seafloor scattering in realistic scenarios and enable the solutions to interesting inverse problems related to sediment biological, hydrodynamic, and geological processes.
