This paper develops a new approach to estimating seabed geoacoustic properties and their uncertainties based on a Bayesian formulation of matched-field inversion. In Bayesian inversion, the solution is characterized by its posterior probability density (PPD), which combines prior information about the model with information from an observed data set. To(More)
This paper develops a series of maximum-likelihood processors for matched-field source localization given various states of information regarding the frequency and time variation of source amplitude and phase, and compares these with existing approaches to coherent processing with incomplete source knowledge. The comparison involves elucidating each(More)
Seabed geoacoustic variability is driven by geological processes that occur over a wide spectrum of space-time scales. While the acoustics community has some understanding of horizontal fine-scale geoacoustic variability, less than O(10(0)) m, and large-scale variability, greater than O(10(3)) m, there is a paucity of data resolving the geoacoustic(More)
This paper develops a new approach to matched-mode processing (MMP) for ocean acoustic source localization. MMP consists of decomposing far-field acoustic data measured at an array of sensors to obtain the excitations of the propagating modes, then matching these with modeled replica excitations computed for a grid of possible source locations. However,(More)
This paper presents a highly-efficient approach to matched-field localization of an unknown number of ocean acoustic sources employing a graphics processing unit (GPU) for massively parallel computations. A Bayesian formulation is developed in which the number, locations, and complex spectra (amplitudes and phases) of multiple sources, as well as noise(More)
This paper describes a Bayesian inversion of acoustic reflection loss versus angle measurements to estimate the compressional and shear wave velocities in young uppermost oceanic crust, Layer 2A. The data were obtained in an experiment on the thinly sedimented western flank of the Endeavor segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge, using a towed horizontal(More)
This paper applies the new method of fast Gibbs sampling (FGS) to estimate the uncertainties of seabed geoacoustic parameters in a broadband, shallow-water acoustic survey, with the goal of interpreting the survey results and validating the method for experimental data. FGS applies a Bayesian approach to geoacoustic inversion based on sampling the posterior(More)
Many approaches to geoacoustic inversion are based implicitly on the assumptions that data errors are Gaussian-distributed and spatially uncorrelated (i.e., have a diagonal covariance matrix). However, the latter assumption is often not valid due to theory errors, and can lead to reduced accuracy for geoacoustic parameter estimates and underestimation of(More)
This paper applies Bayesian inference, including model selection and posterior parameter inference, to inversion of seabed reflection data to resolve sediment structure at a spatial scale below the pulse length of the acoustic source. A practical approach to model selection is used, employing the Bayesian information criterion to decide on the number of(More)
This paper develops a Bayesian approach for two related inverse problems: tracking an acoustic source when ocean environmental parameters are unknown, and determining environmental parameters using acoustic data from an unknown (moving) source. The formulation considers source and environmental parameters as unknown random variables constrained by noisy(More)
