Abstract:

During this reporting period, research was directed towards measuring sediment acoustic parameters in situ. Four field trips were made to use the ARL profilometer to make in situ sound speed measurements. Laboratory work continued to add the capability of measuring shear wave speed and acoustic impedance to the existing profilometer. Shear wave and compressional wave data measured in laboratory sediments are reported.
