Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is to provide a detailed understanding of the stratigraphic significance of buried geologic structure on the New Jersey shelf and the interaction of buried geologic structures with acoustic energy from tactical sonars . A second goal is to test and establish tools and techniques for providing affordable long coring capability to the marine geosciences community. A final goal is to provide groundtruth for the high-quality Chirp record s from the New Jersey natural laboratory, which is critical for achieving the goals of the Geoclutter and Strataform programs, as groundtruth provides the bridge between physical stratigraphic observations, seabed geotechnical properties and acoustic response and seismic interpretations of depositional processes.
