To use the electrical structure of the seafloor to infer critical physical properties such as sediment porosity and permeability and to understand the distribution of these properties in terms of the regional geology. To examine links between acoustic backscatter properties of seafloor sediments and electrically inferred porosities, using porosity and sediment grain size distributions measured in cores as groundtruth information. To map variability in the electrical structure that might be due to fresh water discharge across the continental shelf.
