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

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


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