The potential impact of shell fragment distributions on high-frequency seafloor backscatter

  • A. P. Lyons
  • Published 2005 in IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering


There has been much recent activity on developing and testing high-frequency seafloor volume scattering models and on the related high-resolution characterization of seafloor volumes. This paper will address another plausible volume scattering mechanism that has not yet received much attention-distributions of broken shell fragments in sediment (commonly… (More)
