Abstract:

The long-term goal is to understand the acoustic reverberation properties of zooplankton and microstructure. The results will lead to improved capability in 1 predicting sonar performance and 2 use of sonars in the mapping of the zooplankton and microstructure. The objective is to understand the physics of the scattering by naturally occurring complex bodies or processes so that realistic acoustic scattering models of zooplankton and microstructure can be developed and applied to high-frequency acoustic surveys.
