Abstract : The long term goals are to develop a new model of acoustic bottom backscatter from sandy sediments, based on a multiple scattering theory approach, and hence, properly explain observed phenomena, including Lambert's rule and frequency dependence of backscattering strength, particularly at shallow grazing angles, for which current theories are at a loss.
