Abstract
Acoustic bottom interacting measurements were conducted in shallow water (nominal water depth of 60 m) in Jinhae bay, southern coast of Korea, using 4 to 12 kHz CW signals in May 2015 and 2016. The surficial sediment at a site is mainly composed of silty clay with a mean grain size of 8 phi. Since the seafloor is relatively soft, the bottom-bounced path was very weak compared to direct and sea-surface-bounced paths. On the other hand, a strong arrival reflected from the sub-sediment layer was received after the bottom-bounced arrival especially at lower frequencies. The arrival time difference between the arrival reflected from water-sediment interface and that reflected from the second interface is used to estimate the sound speed in the surficial sediment layer. In addition, the bottom loss as a function of grazing angle are estimated using the bottom-bounded path. Finally, the results are compared to the sedimentary structure imaged by chirp sonar survey.
