Abstract:

The long term goal is to improve the U.S. Navy s capabilities for Mine Burial Prediction MBP. A recent workshop on MBP recommended the use of large-scale laboratory experiments, that can be coupled with field observations, statistical analyses and mathematical modeling, with the goal of enhancing the mine burial predictive capabilities of the U.S. Navy Bennett, 2000. This work was motivated by such recommendation as well as the belief that well conducted laboratory observations will provide a vital bridge between field measurements and numerical modeling of mine burial processes in shallow waters.
