Formations below the deepest zones that can be imaged by an acoustic process.
La porción de la Tierra por debajo de la cual no pueden generarse imágenes de los estratos con los datos sísmicos, o el reflector relativamente continuo más profundo. En algunas regiones, el basamento acústico coincide con el basamento económico y el basamento geológico, o con aquella porción de la Tierra que no comprende las rocas sedimentarias.

I understand. And yet basamento acústico is a rather specific concept... Just as wave base is (base de la ola).

Notes to answerer
Asker: I'm not sure this is right, because they are talking about the seabed and the thickness of sediment there rather than deep underground and I think the cable is basically laid on the seabed rather than inside some kind of tunnel which is why the study is interested on the effect of waves on the sediment.
