Comparison with UAN models

The last comparison can be seen in Fig.7.14, which shows the transmission loss calculated at 25,6 kHz by TRACEO and the acoustic models JEPE, REV3D and XRAY, used by the partners of the UAN project. Although there are no two identical matches all the models exhibit the same trend up until the range of 7 km. The ability of TRACEO to provide similar transmission loss levels to the ones provided by the different models constitutes an important validation of the model's accuracy.
