Abstract:

The Maury Center for Ocean Science sponsored a three-day international gathering of scientists to assess current understanding of biological sound scattering in the oceans. The book is the record of that assessment. It includes both formal invited contributions and informal discussion sessions. The participants first examined the biology of scattering layers, dealing with environmental, ecological and physiological aspects as well as the distribution and abundance of various scattering organisms. The acoustic manifestations of sound scattering, as well as some of its geographic features, were considered on the second day of the conference. The third day was given over to studies employing both biological and acoustic approaches.
