In this work, the influences of various environmental scenarios on the bottom interface and volume reverberation in shallow water were numerically analyzed. Based on similar modeling reverberation geometry defined in previous works, the numerical analyses were conducted for broadband pulse signals to generate complex reverberation structures in the timedomain. The reverberation model used is based on the well-documented Parabolic Equation (PE) approximation. The environmental scenarios are divided into three main categories. They include different sound speed profiles, different levels of bottom interface roughness and different bottom volume fluctuations. While one category is being analyzed, the other two are held constant. The various analyses include broadband two-way reverberation levels comparisons, vertical correlation analysis and power spectral analysis.
