From the reviews:"This book attempts to provide a combination of information and understanding of the physics and detection theory to enable the reader to address sonar performance issues. ... this book is most useful for those who need to build models of aspects of sonar performance. It will also be useful for those who need to specify, test, or evaluate models. ... a source of material for someone preparing a course on underwater acoustics or sonar performance modelling. ... a good reference book for an acoustics library."
