Seabed roughness parameters from joint backscatter and reflection inversion at the Malta Plateau

Steininger, Gavin; Holland, Charles W.; Dosso, S.E.; Dettmer, Jan


This paper presents estimates of seabed roughness and geoacoustic parameters and uncertainties on the Malta Plateau, Mediterranean Sea, by joint Bayesian inversion of mono-static backscatter and spherical wave reflection-coefficient data. The data are modeled using homogeneous fluid sediment layers overlying an elastic basement. The scattering model assumes a randomly rough water-sediment interface with a von Karman roughness power spectrum. Scattering and reflection data are inverted...[Show more]
