Abstract : The results of an unclassified workshop on Shallow Water Acoustics, jointly sponsored by ONR and DARPA, are presented. The workshop was held on October 1-3, 1996 at the Naval Research Laboratory, Stennis Space Center, and included 83 participants specializing in ocean acoustics, geology and geophysics, physical oceanography, and other disciplines relevant to shallow water research. The goal of the workshop was to help determine the current status of and future directions for shallow water acoustics research. The report Summarizes the deliberations and recommendations of the workshop, and includes detailed reports from the three working groups (bottom, water column, and modeling and signal processing) as well as from the workshop moderator (Dr. James Lynch, WHOI).
