Paper Abstract

Estimators of in situ bottom reflectivity are compared to laboratory measured spectra for several sites. Statistics are compiled on the relative fits of the estimators spectral curves to the laboratory data. A best estimator is selected based on these statistics. It is conjectured that the best in situ estimator remains the best estimate of the bottom reflectivity even in more complex ocean bottom areas where laboratory data may no longer provide accurate values for in situ sediment reflectivity.
