Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS To accurately describe the statistics of acoustic echoes due to the presence of fish, especially in the case of a long-range active sonar. Toward this goal, fundamental advances in the understanding of fish behavior, especially in aggregations, will be made under conditions relevant to the echo statistics problem. OBJECTIVES To develop new models of behavior of fish aggregations, including the fissionfusion process, and to describe the echo statistics associated with the random fish behavior using existing formulations of echo statistics.
