The problem of sound source localization using sparse arrays of bottom-mounted synchronized hydrophones is addressed. The closed-form representations for several time-differences of arrival based localization algorithms are given, and their accuracies are compared using both statistical simulations and in situ measurements. In most of the tests, the lowest localization error was provided by the maximum likelihood algorithm.
