Few underwater acoustic models have been validated in the Very Low Frequency (VLF) regime. The purpose here is to explore one model's abilities and compare it with ocean data once it is ascertained the model has converged to its final solution. A comparative analysis of data recorded in NATIVE 1 (the Noise and Transmission Loss in VLF Environments) Event 1 and results generated using the Seismic-Acoustic Fast field Algorithm for Range-Independent Environments (SAFARI) is the focus of this study, with emphasis on understanding some of the model's features.
