Abstract:

The long term objectives are to 1 study the role of wave-induced bubble plumes in ambient noise generation, and 2 characterize acoustic scattering from high void fraction bubble plumes at the sea surface. The origin of the numbers and sizes of bubbles produced within whitecaps, the f-53 dependence of wave-induced noise power on frequency, and the relationship between noise level and surface wave energy dissipation are of particular interest.
