The characterization of a range-dependent environment using towed horizontal array data from the MAPEX 2000 experiment
The characterization of ocean environments using geoacoustic inversion techniques has received alot of attention in recent years. Generally, the inversions are carried out on data recorded at a vertical array of sensors which often produces good results but, from an operational stand point, can be difficult to accommodate. This paper describes the characterization of an ocean environment using data recorded on a horizontal array of sensors. Data from the MAPEX 2000 experiment, conducted in the Mediterranean Sea in 2000, are used to determine seabed parameters for a range-dependent environment. A "proof-of-concept" is provided using synthetic data.
