Abstract:

The objectives are 1 Integration of phenomenological components of the Biot plus grain contact physics models, to reconcile the physical constants and processes, with a view to reducing the number of input variables, 2 a comprehensive model for all sediment types and improved modeling of grain contact physics, and 3 the development and testing of sediment acoustic models through a series of at-sea experiments.
