Seafloor Sciences Branch (Code 7430)


The Seafloor Sciences Branch provides the Navy with the understanding,
description, modeling, and quantitative prediction of marine geological
environments in terms that relate to Navy systems design, construction, and
operations. The branch investigates biological, geological, geochemical,
historical, and subsequent diagenetic processes that control distribution,
range, and variability of sediment physical properties including bathymetry,
roughness, and subseafloor morphology
