Summary:
Laboratory scale measurements were conducted to validate numerical prediction models used to predict the acoustic field in a shallow water ocean environment. Experimental measurements were conducted in a range independent environment which included the effects of shear in marine sediments and in a depth varying range dependent environment. Good agreement between the experimental measurements and the numerical prediction codes were obtained using optimized values for the input parameters of the environmental model. In comparing experimental measurements to the numerical prediction codes it became apparent that the codes were very sensitive to the input parameters describing the bottom boundary of the ocean waveguide.
