Title: Developing International Protocols for Offshore Sediments and their Role in Geohazards: Characterization, Assessment, and Mitigation (NEES-2008-0635)
Year Of Curation: 2012
Description: The PIRE project utilized NEES ES shared use resources to investigate the following two topics: (Experiment 1) development of a variable penetration rate cone system for improved insitu characterization of soils and (Experiment 2) investigation of submarine slope stability of sensitive clays. The projects were performed in parallel, but were logistically unrelated.
