Abstract:

The main goal of this project is to increase our understanding of sound propagation in ocean bottom sediments, which in turn benefits buried object detection, sonar operation and acoustic communications in shallow water. Another goal for the out years is to develop the proposed research apparatus into an operational system for in situ classification of ocean bottoms for Naval fleet operations.
