The present study proposes an MFT algorithm for directly estimating a two-dimensional range-dependent or three-dimensional temperature field. The acoustic system has multiple acoustic emitters and receiver arrays according to a given geometry. The acoustic signal is emitted from one emitter at a time, and collected at multiple receiver arrays. The MFT method is adapted to iteratively produce parameter estimates for each individual environmental cell. To accomplish this, an MF processor based on a multi-array acoustic data model is considered, in order to account for acoustic data collected simultaneously at several acoustic arrays.
