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 objectives of this study are to identify and quantify all physical factors that can influence the magnitudes of the pore water pressures recorded by the Multi-Piezometer Array System MPAS. This information will be used to establish a list of premises under which the MPAS data may be interpreted and to establish the accuracy of the MPAS as a scientific measurement system.
