This book presents a concise description of the acoustics of ocean sediment acoustics, including the latest develop- ments that address the discrepancies between theoretical models and experimental measurements. This work should be of interest to ocean acoustic engineers and physicists, as well as graduate students and course instructors. The sea- bed is neither a liquid nor a solid, but a fluid saturated po- rous material that obeys the wave equations of a poroelastic medium, which are significantly more complicated than the equations of either a liquid or a solid.
This volume presents a model of seabed acoustics with input parameters that allow the model to cover a wide range of sediment types. The author includes example reflection and transmission curves which may be used as typical for a range of sediment types. The contents of this book will allow the reader to understand the physical processes involved in the reflection, propagation, and attenuation of sound and shear waves in ocean sediments and to model the acoustic proper- ties for a wide range of applications.

  The Acoustical Society of America (ASA) invites individuals with a strong interest in any aspect of acoustics including (but not limited to) physical, engineering, oceanographic, biological, psychological, structural, and architectural, to apply for membership. This very broad diversity of inter- ests, along with the opportunities provided for the ex- change of knowledge and points of view, has become one
of the Society's unique and strongest assets. From its beginning in 1929, ASA has sought to serve the wide- spread interests of its members and the acoustics com- munity in all branches of acoustics, both theoretical and applied. ASA publishes the premier journal in the field and annually holds two exciting meetings that bring together colleagues from around the world.
