Abstract : The long-term goal is to demonstrate the potential of bioacoustic absorption spectroscopy for tomographic mapping of the bioacoustic parameters of fish with swim bladders in shallow water in the context of the ONR ASIAEX Program. The objective is to develop a propagation model that accounts for the effects of bioacoustic absorptivity on transmission loss in shallow water at frequencies between 0.2 and 10.0 kHz. Develop a bioacoustic model that accounts for the resonance frequencies of absorption lines, which are due to dispersed pelagic fish, and schools of pelagic fish with swim bladders. Demonstrate consistency between absorptivity and echo sounder based estimates of number densities.
