Keywords:Acoustic wave backscattering, Hydrophones, Sonar, Statistical methods, Wide band sonars (WBS)
AbstractThe effects of azimuthal variability on monostatic acoustic backscatter from the seabed were studied. When converted to scattering strength, the monostatic return showed considerable variability as a function of azimuth. The results showed that the backsattering strength measurements were independent of frequency within the statistical accuracy of the data.
