Abstract:

Our ability to predict acoustic fields in shallow water is limited by the knowledge of the structure and the geoacoustic properties of the bottom, both of which may change with range. The long-term objective of this research project is to investigate broadband matched field inversion methods for estimating geoacoustic model parameters and their uncertainties, in shallow water environments that may be range-dependent.
