Acoustic characteristics of the shelves between Alaska and U.S.S.R

Houtz, R. E

Sound velocity characteristics at the seafloor and down to depths of 9-10 km have been generalized from 554 sonobuoy solutions in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas. Sediment isopachs, contoured seafloor sound velocities, general geology, and velocity-depth functions appear in a set of regional charts--Author
