The geographic variation of midwater sound-scattering(u)
MetadataShow full item record
It is suggested in this report that the intensity of midwater sound-scattering in the ocean varies from point to point as the abundance of marine life varies. Several charts depicting variations in the abundance of marine life are given, from which estimates of the intensity of sound-scattering can be made.

Differences between sound scattering by weakly scattering spheres and finite-length cylinders with applications to sound scattering by zooplankton Stanton, Timothy K.; Wiebe, Peter H.; Chu, Dezhang (Acoustical Society of America, 1998-01)A modeling study was conducted to determine the conditions under which fluidlike zooplankton of the same volume but different shapes (spherical/cylindrical) have similar or dramatically different scattering properties. ...
Broadband and statistical characterization of echoes from random scatterers : application to acoustic scattering by marine organisms Lee, Wu-Jung (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-02)The interpretation of echoes collected by active remote-sensing systems, such as sonar and radar, is often ambiguous due to the complexities in the scattering processes involving the scatterers, the environment, and the ...
Sound scattering by several zooplankton groups. I. Experimental determination of dominant scattering mechanisms Stanton, Timothy K.; Chu, Dezhang; Wiebe, Peter H.; Martin, Linda V.; Eastwood, Robert L. (Acoustical Society of America, 1998-01)The acoustic scattering properties of live individual zooplankton from several gross anatomical groups have been investigated. The groups involve (1) euphausiids (Meganyctiphanes norvegica) whose bodies behave acoustically ...
