The problem of ray transmission in the coastal sea is different from that of the deep sea in many respects. The proximity of the bottom to the surface in coastal water causes multiple reflections of rays and the ray pattern is further complicated by the slope of the bottom. In addition, realistic shallow water profiles often exhibit curvatures due to mixed layers near the surface and bottom which result from fluid friction at both boundaries. In this work, ray transmissions in the coastal sea (i.e., with a sloping bottom) are considered when the velocity profile is described by a non-linear profile rather than by the conventional linear or segmented-linear profile. The investigation is restricted to refracted/bottom-reflected (RBR) rays.
