Abstract:

There are two long term goals, as follows. 1 Sediments Develop a physics-based model to characterize the inter-relationships that exist between the geo-acoustic properties i.e., compressional-wave speed and attenuation, shear-wave speed and attenuation, frequency, density, porosity, grain size, grain shape and overburden pressure of saturated, unconsolidated granular media such as marine sediments. 2 Acoustics of ship wakes Relate the bubble structure to the acoustic properties of ship wakes.
