Abstract

We study how the presence of small scale random layering may affect the interpretation of acoustic scattering data. Our methods include theoretical analysis based on the idea of localization of states, in conjunction with Monte Carlo simulations of particular layered systems suggested by interesting geophysical examples. We show that the random layering can produce dramatic effects by leading to a cutoff frequency for transmission through the system.
