Abstract : In 1994, during the end of October and the beginning of November, the first Shallow Water Active Classification (SWAC-1) sea trial took place in the Malta Channel region of the Mediterranean. One of the experiments used SUS sources and sonobuoy receivers to measure very shallow propagation effects. A limited data set is presented with a propagation prediction study using a number of models.
