The application of a wide band, spark source echo sounder, the Sub-bottom Depth Recorder (SDR) to foundation studies for the proposed Chesapeake Bay Highway Crossing from Little Creek to Cape Charles, Virginia, is described in detail. Reflection horizons are correlated with varying properties of the sediments as revealed in test borings.
