Abstract : This report summarizes a year-long study of underwater sound volume reverberation by AVCO. During this time, data from the Mediterranean, Bermuda and Bahama areas were collected and reduced in terms of volume scattering strength per unit area, or volume scattering coefficients. The dependence of the results on such parameters as frequency, elevation angle, local time and layer depth is given. The results are compatible with those of other investigations in the field.
