Abstract:

Acoustic relaxation theory for visco-elastic media provides for sound propagation in unconsolidated marine sediments. For the frequency range of 14 to 200 kHz, dispersion for compressional-wave and shear-wave velocity is negligible for all practical purposes, but sound absorption shows significant changes. Author
