Abstract:

My long-term goal is to understand the physical, chemical and geological processes that control the physical properties of shallow water marine sediments. Of particular interest to me are the parameters of compressional wave velocity, density and permeability, and their control on the acoustic properties of sand. These physical property measurements will be used to constrain models of acoustic wave penetration into and propagation within sandy sediments at high frequencies.
