Award Number: N00014-05-1-0701 LONG-TERM GOALS As a participant of the ONR Shallow Water Acoustics experiment conducted on the outer New Jersey shelf during the summer of 2006 (SWA06), the long term goal of this project is to understand the interaction of acoustic energy, at both medium and low frequencies, with the seabed. OBJECTIVES The objectives of this work are to (1) incorporate existing geological, geophysical and geoacoustic data into a

Expected products include: (1) A structural/stratigraphic model of the subbottom, along primary acoustic propagation pathways of the SWA06 experiment and regionally with existing and newly collected chirp seismic data.
