A model for the study of marine seismic phenomena is described. Study of multiple-reflection phenomena forms the basis for the course of experiments. It is shown that the multiple-reflection phenomenon of a disturbance with slowly decaying amplitude may be duplicated in the model. Multiple-reflection problems are studied in which the bottom of the water layer is tilted or thin. A mass of air bubbles is shown to be of use in attenuating multiple reflections. The possible application of the marine model in a search for information about certain problems in field prospecting is suggested.
