The aim of the SIGMA project is to investigate the relations between the acoustic parameters of marine sediments (reflection factor, sound velocity, attenuation, dispersion etc.) and their geophysical and geotechnical properties (sediment type, grain size distribution, cohesion, gas content, etc.). The acoustic parameters of the sediments are estimated from wide frequency band measurements, using a steerable parametric array combined with a towed array of receivers.
