Abstract

A Green’s function representation for acoustic pressure in an ocean with depth-varying sound speed over a poroelastic seabed is derived via a residue computation. Transmission loss curves for upward and downward refracting sound speed profiles in the ocean are computed for three sediments of different coarseness.
