An analytical approximation to the image theory model is developed for predicting the acoustical pressure field in a wedge-shaped ocean. This thesis is a continuation of the ongoing development of this model. Previously, limitations has restricted the source and receiver to be placed in only an upslope/downslope configuration. This thesis removes these limitations and allows the source and the receiver to be placed in cross-slope configurations.
