Abstract:

Several fundamental controversial problems are still unresolved regarding the seismoacoustic properties of saturated sand 1-3, moist sand 4-5, and dry beach sand 4-5. The long-term goal of the research is to develop fundamental physical understanding of mechanisms affecting the seismoacoustic properties of unconsolidated marine sediments under various conditions. The research outcome would lead to accurate modeling of marine sediments and reliable seismoacoustic detection of buried objects.
