Abstract : The invention deals with in situ measurement of the acoustical properties of the ocean floor while ocean sediment core samples are being obtained and specifically provides means for generating a sound wave. A record is made of the sound transmission characteristics of the core sample as a true representation of the ocean floor in its natural state in that location.
