There are several reasons why a researcher in underwater acoustics might be interested in the use of explosion pulses as sources. The most generally recognized reason is that explosions are convenient and powerful sources of broad spectrum sound energy. Usually, however, the received signals are filtered for analysis - for example, through one-octave or one-third octave band filters - to correspond to the characteristics of a sonar application of interest.
