A normal-mode model for calculating reverberation in shallow water is presented. Some illustrative calculations are given for the bistatic case and for vertical and horizontal line-array receivers. Emphasis is on comparison with measurements of bistatic reverberation obtained at a shallow-water area in the Mediterranean. The data are from explosive sources received by a towed array, analyzed in one-tenth-decade frequency bands at subkilohertz frequencies. Model calculations for a flat-bottomed environment indicate a strong dependence on propagation conditions and a weak dependence on beam steering direction. Preliminary comparisons give quite good agreement between measured reverberation and model predictions, but point to the need for extending modeling efforts to handle range-dependent environments
