This book is a research monograph on high-Frequency Seafloor Acoustics. It is the first book in a new series sponsored by the Office of Naval Research on the latest research in underwater acoustics. It provides a critical evaluation of the data and models pertaining to high-frequency acoustic interaction with the seafloor, which will be of interest to researchers in underwater acoustics and to developers of sonars. Models and data are presented so as to be readily usable, backed up by extensive explanation. Much of the data is new, and the discussion in on two levels: concise descriptions in the main text backed up by extensive technical appendices.

From the reviews:
"This book constitutes one monograph in the series on underwater acoustics sponsored by the United States Office of Naval Research. ... High Frequency Seafloor Acoustics is clearly written with many illustrations, graphs, colour maps, and pictures. While the book can assist the non-initiated in getting an understanding of some of the physical concepts involved in underwater acoustics, the monograph will be much more appreciated by the specialist interested in the theoretical as well as the experimental aspects of underwater sound."
