### Abstract

The statistical properties of acoustic signals reflected by a randomly layered medium are analyzed when a pulsed spherical wave issuing from a point source is incident upon it. The asymptotic analysis of stochastic equations and geometrical acoustics is used to arrive at a set of transport equations that characterize multiply scattered signals observed at the surface of the layered medium. The results of extensive numerical simulations are presented, illustrating the scope of the theory. A number of inverse problems for randomly layered media are also formulated where we
