Abstract:

The long-term goal is to quantify and model the production of sound by breaking waves in the open ocean and the surf zone. Sound production on both of these regions is associated with the formation of plumes of bubbles within and beneath breaking wave crests, and the studies described here share the goal of relating breaking wave activity to bubble formation and ambient noise generation.
