Low-Frequency Scattering from Heterogeneous Elastic Sea Beds

Abstract

In many practical cases, description of acoustic propagation and reverberation in marine environment requires knowledge of two acoustic characteristics of the bottom: reflection loss and scattering strength. At present, GABIM (Geophysical Acoustic Bottom Interaction Model [1]) developed at APL-UW represents the most general code used for predicting and analysis of these characteristics for a wide variety of sea bed types. Note however that there are also cases where these two characteristics are not adequate descriptors, and therefore alternative approaches and models are needed.
