As the interest of the military moves to shallow water, so the tasks demanded of acoustics increases both in scope and complexity. Acoustical interactions with the sea surface and seabed provide both limitations to activities and opportunities for exploitation. Engineering requirements are pushing, as never before, the need to understand the physics of these interactions. Presentations of recent results from ONR sponsored SAX04, SWAMSI and other MCM programmes, will set the current level of knowledge and provide guidance for future efforts. This book and the enclosed CD-Rom are the proceedings of a conference organized and held at the Department of Physics, University of Bath, UK 5th-9th September, 2005 CD-Rom included This volume contains a CD-Rom which in addition to an electronically searchable version of the proceeding, has full colour versions of figures which are printed in black and white in the book. The significant support given by the Office of Naval Research and Office of Naval Research Global is gratefully acknowledged.
