A self-consistent theory for seabed volume scattering.

Tracey, Brian H.
Schmidt, Henrik.

A self-consistent perturbation method for three-dimensional acoustic scattering due to sound speed and density fluctuations is developed below. This method allows calculation of mean-field attenuation due to scattering, as well as second-moment statistics of the scattered field. Scattering from an inhomogeneous sediment bottom in shallow water is considered as an application. The power spectral de... read more
