Abstract : The long-term goal is to provide geophysical and geological environmental characterization in support of Office of Naval Research shallow water acoustics experiments. The objectives are to conduct a reconnaissance CHIRP subbottom reflection and vibracoring survey offshore Panama City, Florida, in advance of the ONR shallow water acoustics reverberation experiment that was conducted in 2013 and to analyze data for a scientific study of shoreface ravinement and the formation of the Holocene sand sheet.
