No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This fourth edition of a bestseller continues to provide the most authoritative overview of currently available propagation, noise, reverberation, and sonar-performance models. It discusses the fundamental processes involved in simulating the performance of underwater acoustic systems and emphasizes the importance of applying the proper modeling resources to simulate the behavior of sound in virtual ocean environments. Along with new problem sets, this edition addresses recent advances in inverse techniques and marine-mammal protection and includes updated and expanded inventories of available models.
