ANALYSIS OF BACKSCATTERING DATA IN THE TYRRHENIAN SEA

Research has been conducted to measure low-frequency basin reverberation and relate the measurements to backscattered strength. The receivers were a towed horizontal array and a suspended vertical array. Standard Italian Navy depth (74 kg) and SUS 0.818 kg) charges were used as sources. The data were collected simultaneously from the horizontal and vertical array. Estimates of backscattering strengths of different features are provided and are in the range quoted in other publications. A comparison of the horizontal and vertical array scattering strengths estimated for some selected basin features is also included. Statistics for the dominant backscatterers are given, and the results from one basin feature are presented showing detailed backscatter structure.
