 Overview of the ASIAEX East China Sea Program
For example, the range of inverted sound speeds corresponding to the water-sediment interface is 1557–1643 m/s; at a depth of 0.5 m this range is 1590–1643 m/s, and at a depth of 1 m it is 1600–1650 m/s.
Energy loss in forward scattering from the sea surface associated with wind-speed dependent bubbles was measured over long (24 h) periods during ASIAEX [11].
Whether or not the sea surface has a significant effect on the fidelity of geoacoustic inversions will depend on the sea state, the frequency range, and acoustic measure being inverted.
