A solution of of the wave sound equation in shallow water for real speed profiles and solid bottom under sediment
The wave equation has been solved by using normal mode theory. The medium is assumed to be horizontally stratified. A closed form solution has been found in the case of GANS - PEDERSEN types of density and sound-speed profiles. For real profiles of any given shape a numerical solution is employed that makes use of the VOLTERRA integral equation.
