A technique for measuring the plane‐wave reflection coefficient of a horizontally stratified ocean bottom is presented. It is based on the fact that for a point source the bottom‐reflected field and the plane‐wave reflection coefficient are related through a two‐dimensional Fourier transform. Knowing the reflected field as a function of position, one can therefore use the fast Fourier transform to obtain the reflection coefficient as a function of wave number. Examples which illustrate the… CONTINUE READING
