Abstract

Acoustics is an essential enabling technology for the study and exploitation of the marine environment. The ability of sound to travel over long distances in the water is the basis for applications in remote control, observation and telemetry. New instruments are being developed continuously for use in the sea, so are concepts and tools for modelling sound propagation, while signal processing techniques are being adapted to underwater applications. This book is a compilation of papers presented at a conference held by the CEC two years ago on the important subject of underwater acoustics. The topics covered relate to Arctic acoustics, calibrations, communications, fisheries, measurements, noise, propagation, risk assessment, scattering, sea floor, signal processing, tomography, transducers and wideband.
