Long description: Fine-grained sediments occur in areas of the continental shelf where wave and current energy are weak. A range of fundamental physical properties of these sediments are required to predict the response of the seabed. Coring is time consuming and laborious, with large uncertainties associated with sediment disturbance, whereas acoustic methods offer the advantages of speed and no disturbance associated with remote sensing mehods. Two different acoustic methods are described: the relative strengths and sensitivities of each approach are explored through simulations guided by experience with measured data.
