Geophysical quantification of seafloor greenhouse gas: the effect of gas bubble and hydrate morphology on sediment geophysical properties. (NERC grant NE/J022403/1)

Dataset description

The first dataset consists of the data to accompany the paper 'Modelling acoustic scattering, sound speed, and attenuation in gassy soft marine sediments' by A. Mantouka, H. Dogan, P.R. White and T.G. Leighton. This paper was published as J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 140, 274 (2016); The second dataset consists of the data to accompany an as-yet unpublished study, which will be entitled 'Acoustic wave propagation in gassy porous marine sediments: the rheological and the elastic effects' by H. Dogan, P.R. White and T.G. Leighton.


The data is for consideration for publication by a journal that has strict policy of prior publication. The data can be made available as soon as the data is published by the journal. (Embargo date 1st September 2017)
