Abstract:

The original research under this contract was directed toward comparison of ocean bottom seismometer and hydrophone data with ocean sub-bottom seismometer data and with appropriate synthetics to determine the effect of sub-bottom structure on the signals received expected propagation loss predominant modes of propagation instrument signal distortion and excess noise expected spacial coherence and expected improvement from polarization and array processing. During the first and subsequent years of the contract, research emphasis was re-directed toward analysis interpretation of data from the Columbia-Point Arena ocean bottom seismic station OBSS emphasizing the objectives of the ONR Accelerated Research Initiative in ULFVLF Ocean Seismo-Acoustics.
