Abstract : This report consists of a set of lecture notes for a course in underwater acoustics, given at the U. S. Naval Air Development Center. The course is based to a considerable extent upon J. W. Horton's book, 'Fundamentals of Sonar,' and covers the following topics: physical properties of acoustic waves in water, relative magnitudes and transmission loss, propagation, transducers, indicators and recorders, detection of signals, echo-ranging, and a brief discussion of signal processing for active sonars.
