When solving traditional underwater problems, the boundary condition is always used to calculate the sound field. In practice, however, it is hard to get the boundary conditions of the seabed. So geoacoustics inversion is needed to acquire the parameters of the seabed. In this paper, a method estimating seabed parameters by using the spatial characteristics of ocean ambient noise is demonstrated without using matched-field processing. For the reason of the limit of the resolution of conventional beamforming (CBF), a method of synthetic array processing (SAP) is used because of some characters of cross-spectrum density matrix (CSDM). The result shows that the method of synthetic array processing enhanced the resolution of critical angle to some degree. By comparing the true bottomloss calculated by OASR, the result of traditional beamforming and the synthetic array processing, the result of synthetic array processing is closer to the true bottomloss than the result of traditional beamforming. After ensuring a range of critical angle, the sound speed of the seabed can be estimated by using Snell law. And then, an experimental data collected in Qingdao, China, 2016 is used to prove the validity of the method of synthetic array processing and estimate the local seabed parameters.
