Applied Underwater Acoustics meets the needs of scientists and engineers working in underwater acoustics and graduate students solving problems in, and preparing theses on, topics in underwater acoustics. The book is structured to provide the basis for rapidly assimilating the essential underwater acoustic knowledge base for practical application to daily research and analysis. Each chapter of the book is selfsupporting and focuses on a single topic and its relation to underwater acoustics. The chapters start with a brief description of the topic's physical background, necessary definitions, and a short description of the applications, along with a roadmap to the chapter. The subtopics covered within individual subchapters include most frequently used equations that describe the topic. Equations are not derived, rather, assumptions behind equations and limitations on the applications of each equation are emphasized. Figures, tables, and illustrations related to the subtopic are presented in an easytouse manner, and examples on the use of the equations, including appropriate figures and tables are also included.  Provides a complete and uptodate treatment of all major subjects of underwater acoustics
 Presents chapters written by recognized experts in their individual field
 Covers the fundamental knowledge scientists and engineers need to solve problems in underwater acoustics
 Illuminates, in shorter subchapters, the modern applications of underwater acoustics that are described in worked examples
 Demands no prior knowledge of underwater acoustics, and the physical principles and mathematics are designed to be readily understood by scientists, engineers, and graduate students of underwater acoustics
 Includes a comprehensive list of literature references for each chapter
