Abstract : The purpose of this document is to provide the ASW community with a description of the Acoutics Models and Databases currently resident at NORDA Code 323. It contains information to acquaint potential users with the current acoustic prediction capabilities. The description of each database typically includes a list of the environmental parameters, the area of coverage and its resolution. The description of each acoustic model includes a discussion of the basic concepts and the simplyfing assumptions used, a verbal description of the mathematical techniques employed, and the principal products of each model, e.g. transmission loss. A list of the required input parameters, including both environmental and other (source depth, frequency, etc.) is also given. If options for the specfication of the environmental parameters are available, they are identified; e.g. some may be either user specified or obtained from a database. (Author)
