Behavior of underwater sound propagation over long-ranges has been studied for several decades. The purpose of this is to describe sound propagation phenomena in various ocean environments. The key to understanding and visualizing is mathematical modeling. In the ocean acoustics community, four major mathematical techniques have been commonly used to model behavior of acoustic signal in the ocean environment. And they can be categorized into two different fields, range-independent and range-dependent. The accuracy of each method is depends on the environment characteristics. Since the propagating signal can be characterized through the mathematical modeling, it is then possible to use the propagating signal to perform beamforming and determine the characteristic of beam output.
