## Ocean Acoustics Textbooks

[Frisk] Frisk, George V. *Ocean and Seabed Acoustics: A Theory of Wave Propagation*. Prentice Hall, 1994. ISBN: 9780136301127.

A complete beginning graduate level text on ray and (especially) mode techniques.

[COA] Jensen, Finn B., William A. Kuperman, et al. *Computational Ocean Acoustics*. Springer, 2011. ISBN: 9781441986771. [Preview with Google Books]

This is perhaps the most essential text for the "advanced ocean acoustics and numerical methods" part of this course.

[B&L] Brekhovskikh, L. M., and Yu. P. Lysanov. *Fundamentals of Ocean Acoustics*. Springer, 2010. ISBN: 9781441930156.

Another upper level text covering a wide range of topics in ocean acoustics and scattering.

[KP] Katznelson, Boris G. and Valery G. Petnikov. "Shallow Water Accoustics." Springer-Verlag, 2002. ISBN: 9781852331849.

The predecessor to the updated [FSWA] book, wth substantially different material.

[FSWA] Katsnelson, Boris G., Valery G. Petnikov, and James Lynch. *Fundamentals of Shallow Water Acoustics*. Springer, 2012. ISBN: 9781441997760. [Preview with Google Books]

[M&C] Medwin, Herman, and Clarence S. Clay. *Fundamentals of Acoustical Oceanography (Applications of Modern Acoustics)*. Academic Press, 1997. ISBN: 9780124875708. [Preview with Google Books]

[OG] Ogilvy, J.A. "Theory of Wave Scattering From Random Rough Surfaces." Taylor & Francis, 1991. ISBN: 9780750300636.

A very good basic book on acoustic and electromagnetic wave scattering.

## Inverse Textbooks

[ABT] Aster, Richard, Brian Borchers, and Clifford Thurber. *Parameter Estimation and Inverse Problems*. Academic Press, 2005. ISBN: 9780120887927.

A very nice basic text on linear techniques, as well as weakly non-linear and Bayesian techniques.

[Sounds] Medwin, Herman.* Sounds in the Sea: from Ocean Acoustics to Acoustical Oceanography*. Cambridge University Press, 2005. ISBN: 9780521829502. [Preview with Google Books]

The second part of this book, on new frontiers in acoustical oceanography, make it stand out from a "standard text."

[Mencke] Menke, William. *Geophysical Data Analysis: Discrete Inverse Theory*. Academic Press, 1989. ISBN: 9780124909212. [Preview with Google Books]

A great basic text.

If you have these books available, you have a nice basic library for ocean acoustics and acoustical oceanography.
