Abstract : When direct timing methods of determining distances are applied to underwater sound reflected from the ocean bottom, slant ranges are obtained instead of horizontal ranges. This report provides a set of tabulations for the conversion of bottom-reflected slant ranges to horizontal ranges for various water depths. The horizontal range is computed from 0 to 90.2 kiloyards for water depths ranging from 1000 to 3600 fathoms in 200-fathom intervals. (Author)
