Abstract

Ocean-bottom sediment porosity and acoustic reflectivity are related by a simple linear equation. The equation was derived empirically from data published by several investigations and is valid for a wide variety of sediment types and ocean conditions. The degree of validity of the relationship appears to be excellent as the correlation coefficient between the porosity and acoustic reflectivity is 0.97.
