Pagination or Media Count:
The long term objective is to characterize fully the inter-relationships that exist between the geoacoustic 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. This will be based on at-sea experiments and the development of new, physics-based theories of wave propagation in saturated granular media.
