Abstract:

Executive Summary During May-June, 1995, an acoustic experiment was conducted on the outer Albanian continental shelf. In conjunction with the acoustic measurements, an oceanographic and geological-geophysical assessment of the entire Albanian continental shelf was performed. Transmission-loss results of CW pulses at 400 Hz, 600 Hz, 800 Hz, and 1 kHz were successfully modelled. A standard geoacoustic profile for the outer shelf area has been developed for the Platform Geoacoustic Terrane area in which the roughness, geological and geophysical properties and bottom materials are very similar. The geoacoustic profile provides the basis for proposing other geoacoustic profiles for all areas of the Albanian Shelf. All map and linked numerical and image data and information is available on a CD-ROM in digital form, using a Geographical Information System GIs format and linked data set DMap.
