Abstract:

The ultimate goal of this research project is to improve understanding of the dynamic pore water pressure gradients in shallow-water, surficial sediments generated by wind waves, and the impact of these gradients on burial of seafloor-resting mines by sediment scour and liquefaction. The objective of this work is to provide logistic and technical support for the deployment of the Multi- Piezometer Array System MPAS during the Mine Burial Specialist Team MBST critical field experiment conducted in the North Sea during May 1997.
