Abstract:

Work reported here consisted of three parts 1 in situ determination of compressional wave speed in ocean sediments using the ARLUT profilometer 2 development of transducers to measure shear wave and acoustic impedance parameters of sediments both in situ and in the laboratory and 3 laboratory measurement of shear wave and compressional wave parameters of real and artificial sediments. Data obtained for the three parts of the program are reported. Author
