Abstract:

Our long-term goals are to help understand to an extent that allows quantitative prediction important interactions among acoustic propagation, marine organisms, particles including sediments, solutes and moving fluids. The reason for this goal is to permit solution of interesting forward and inverse problems in the marine environment although this group of PIs may not always agree on which are the forward and which are the inverse problems. Our present objectives are to attempt to work toward being able to relate rate of change of acoustic backscatter from the seabed with bioturbation rates.
