Abstract:

The goal of the research is to develop fundamental physical understanding of the seismoacoustic properties of unconsolidated marine sediments under various conditions. The research outcome would lead to a accurate modeling and prediction of the interaction of high-frequency underwater acoustic waves with water covered marine sediments, and b reliable seismoacoustic detection of buried objects both in shallow water and near the beach where the acoustic properties of nonuniform drying of sand with salt, trapped air bubbles, biological traces, and inhomogeneities are least understood.
