Abstract : This report summarizes work done during the period 1 August 1975-30 June 1983. Major accomplishments include: Development and use of instrumentation to perform in situ measurements of acoustical parameters of marine sediments, measurement of shear and compressional wave parameters of laboratory sediments, development of theoretical descriptions of acoustic propagation in sediments, and laboratory experiments to test various theoretical models of propagation in sediments.
