Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS. Develop propagation models and related methods for complex shallow-water environments, test their capabilities and accuracy, and apply them using environmental and acoustic data. OBJECTIVES. A Treat propagation through range-dependent elastic and poro-elastic sediments, in waveguides of variable overall thickness, and with pulse or broadband sources. B Find field statistics efficiently from stochastic propagation models, quantify effects of random environmental and experimental variability, and use model predictions to analyze data.
