Grant Number: N00014-96-1-0422 LONG-TERM GOALS The long-term goal of this research is to increase our understanding of shallow water acoustic propagation and its relationship to the three-dimensionally varying geoacoustic properties of the seabed. OBJECTIVES The scientific objectives of this research are: (1) to develop high-resolution methods for characterizing the spatial and temporal behavior of the normal mode field in shallow water; (2) to use this characterization as input data to
more » ... put data to inversion techniques for inferring the acoustic properties of the shallow water waveguide; and (3) to use this characterization to improve our ability to localize and track sources.
