Geoacoustic models for selected shallow water areas
This report summarizes recent work on characterization of shallow water"reference sites" for well-characterized seafloor types. Geoacoustic models are presented for five sites in three shallow-water areas: the Sicilian Channel, the Balearic Shelf, and the Southwest Approaches to the English Channel. The geoacoustic models have been tested by comparing predicted and measured transmission loss at each site. References to reports on the individual sites are given.
