Abstract:

Long-term goals Enable realistic acoustic modeling in the continental shelf environment given limited geological and geophysical data. Objectives Formulate statistical models of shelf and slope bathymetric roughness and for stratigraphic architecture. Develop methodology for interpolation of sparsely sampled bathymetric and stratigraphic data. Ground-truth swath sonar data to enable prediction of geotechnical properties of surface sediments.
