This paper presents a single receiver geoacoustic inversion method adapted for low-frequency impulsive sources. It is applied to light bulb data collected during the Shallow Water 2006 experiment. The inversion is carried out by extracting dispersion curves from the received signal, and comparing them to simulated replicas. To achieve dispersion curve estimation in the time-frequency domain, modal separability is improved using a signal processing method called warping. The inversion scheme allows for a reliable estimation of the New Jersey Shelf sediment properties (compressional sound speed and density). It also provides an accurate estimation of the source/receiver range.
