About this book

The objective of this book is to present the main theoretical approaches and models in shallow water acoustics as well as different experimental results. The focus is primarily concentrated on physical results describing the sound field in wave length. The authors show dynamic phenomena (tides, internal waves) from the perspective of acoustic influence as well as the scattering of sound over the macroscopic body in shallow water waveguide. The method of acoustic probing can be used by physicists, geophysicists, geologists and oceanographers.

Reviews

From the reviews: 

"[The] physical insight and presentation in this volume made it a pleasure to read ... I would heartily recommend this book to any researcher or graduate student working in shallow water acoustics. It presents an overview of a very active field from a fresh viewpoint, and with a fine feel for the basic physics of the medium. It is a book that is well worth the rather high price ... I would encourage you to add it to your bookshelf." JOURNAL OF THE ACOUSTICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA
