Title Investigation of Mechanisms that Cause Changes to Bottom Reverberation Fluctuation Statistics.
Publication Date Jan 1998
Media Count 202p
Personal Author L. S. Deliman
Abstract An investigation into the underlying mechanisms that cause bottom reverberation fluctuation statistics to deviate from the typically assumed Rayleigh distribution reveals that sediment 'patchiness' is a major contributor. The investigation involved proces ...
