On the use of adaptive beam forming techniques for geoacoustic inversion of marine ambient noise

We provide an explanation for the poor performance of the minimum-variance distortionless-response (MVDR) beam former when applied to one particular technique for geoacoustic inversion of marine ambient noise. Previous studies have shown that using the Bartlett beam former one can estimate the reflection loss (RL) as a function of frequency and grazing… CONTINUE READING
