It is well known that multiple frequency sources are necessary for accurate geoacoustic inversion. This paper presents an inversion method which uses the low frequency (LF) spectrum only to estimate bottom properties even in the presence of expected errors in source location, phone depths, and ocean sound-speed profiles. Matched field processing (MFP) along a vertical array is used. The LF method first conducts an exhaustive search of the (five) parameter search space (sediment thickness, sound-speed at the top of the sediment layer, the sediment layer sound-speed gradient, the half-space sound-speed, and water depth) at 25 Hz and continues by retaining only the high MFP value parameter combinations. Next, frequency is slowly increased while again retaining only the high value combinations. At each stage of the process, only those parameter combinations which give high MFP values at all previous LF predictions are considered (an ever shrinking set). It is important to note that a complete search of each relevant parameter space seems to be necessary not only at multiple (sequential) frequencies but also at multiple ranges in order to eliminate sidelobes, i.e., false solutions. Even so, there are no mathematical guarantees that one final, unique “solution” will be found.
