Sediment Acoustics

The U.S. Geological Survey recognizes the need to provide sediment acoustic training and to develop standardized techniques and practices. The multi-agency Sediment Acoustic Leadership Team (SALT) develops technical guidance and training for using acoustic metrics to monitor aquatic sediment. These pages provide information on sediment acoustics for users in the USGS and other agencies.
