Abstract : Thirteen sea bottom cores were collected by scuba divers in the shallow water approaches to Norfolk, Virginia, and were analyzed for geotechnical, geoacoustical and sedimentalogical properties. The results of these core analyses will be used with historical data in the Naval Oceanographic Office's world-wide data bank to investigate the possible existence of reliable geotechnical property relationships for the East, West, and Gulf Coasts of the United States.
