Abstract:

An experimental system has been developed that makes possible the in situ collection of acoustic data in marine sediments, with greater convenience and accuracy than has been obtainable by laboratory analysis of bottom core samples. The feasibility of the system, operating in conjunction with the NUC Cable-Controlled Underwater Research Vehicle CURV II, has been demonstrated. System capabilities are discussed.
