3D Underwater Acoustics
This Special Issue focuses on three-dimensional (3D) volumetric and boundary effects on underwater sound propagation and scattering in complex underwater environments. It presents a collection of twenty-four articles on the following topics: (1) benchmark problems, (2) numerical solution algorithms, (3) waveguide parameter sensitivity studies, (4) scaled laboratory experiments, and (5) realist modeling and field work studies of the effects of 3D physical oceanographic processes and marine geological features. This Special Issue demonstrates the breadth of this ongoing 3D underwater acoustics research field.
Guest Editors: Ying-Tsong Lin, Michael B. Porter, Frédéric Sturm, Marcia J. Isakson, and Ching-Sang Chiu
