A ray travel time inversion scheme has been developed not only for localizing the source and calibrating the array position, but also for characterizing environmental parameters such as sound-speed profiles in both water column and sediment [I-Tai Lu, 2983A (1994)]. Here, we will present the detailed studies of robustness and resolution of this method.
