Abstract:

Long-Term Goals To understand and exploit the resonance scattering by swimbladder-bearing fish typically in the 1-10 kHz frequency region. Exploitation of the resonances can significantly reduce ambiguities in interpreting acoustic scattering in terms of meaningful biological parameters compared with traditional higher frequency approaches and other lower frequency narrowband approaches. Objectives To conduct a new class of quantitative acoustic studies of scattering by swimbladder-bearing fish utilizing new broadband-acoustic technology that is optimized for use in the resonance scattering region offish.
