Abstract:

Our long-term objective is to establish a database of sediment and bottom properties including sediment compressional wave speed, shear wave speed, attenuation and density. Using this we propose to provide the best sediment model for any region with estimates of model uncertainty. These data would be appropriate for incorporation in state-of-the-art propagation models for acoustic effects prediction on the marine environment.
