Seabed sediment characteristics assessed geophysically: results of experiments in the Clyde Sea, Scotland
Within a research programme aimed at developing in situ sediment classification methodologies, it has been demonstrated that with only limited ground truth information, sub-bottom profiler data can be inverted to produce quantitative information on the spatial distribution of surficial sediment physical properties. Further, it has also been shown that using an integrated approach to the analysis of seismic shear wave velocity data and reflection responses can help discriminate subtle variations in the seabed sediment properties.
