Abstract
    The rheology properties of the underwater sediment will influence the possibility of Navigation through it (or just above it). The rheology of the fluid/partially consolidated Mud is a very complex issue. Most of the techniques to determine the nautical bottom Are based on density information because of the relatively easy way of measuring. The problem is that the Relation density - rheology can not be used as such. More correct and direct ways to relate the rheological Parameters to the sludge are: in-situ sampling (of disturbed and undisturbed samples) combined with Performing laboratory rotoviscosimeter tests on these samples or direct in-situ rheological measurements With body-profiling rotoviscosimeter. Relating this information to the structural information from the Acoustical profiling methods is a step forward, but because of its complexity, it is seldom used. An accurate And easy to use online rheology properties measuring instrument (measuring shear-strength (rigidity and Viscosity)) is still to be designed.
