Abstract:

My long-term goal is to understand important interactions among organisms, non-living particles including sediments, solutes and moving fluids. The reason for this goal is to be able to solve interesting forward and inverse problems dealing with marine biota. My current objectives under this grant are to determine what biological information can be obtained from acoustic backscatter arising at and on both sides of the sediment-water interface. Previous efforts under this grant also included assessments of effects of flow on motion of planktonic diatoms and the abilities of benthic animals to sense vibrations--explaining the grant title, which is now outdated and the current list of publications.
