Abstract:

The primary goal of the ONR Mine Burial Prediction Program is to provide to the Navy quantitative estimates of the likelihood of mine burial following deployment. To do this, it is essential to have an accurate assessment of the geologic and oceanographic conditions and understanding of the sedimentary processes acting in proximity to the mines.
