MetadataShow full item record
The acoustic scattering amplitude for a dilute gaseous object of arbitrary form in a liquid medium is determined self-consistently for the case of linear dimension small as compared to the wavelength. A scatterer of bulk modulus β, and density p, in a medium of bulk modulus II and density p may exhibit monopole resonance scattering at a frequency w,= (4πβoC / pV)l, in which V is the volume and C is the capacitance in electrostatic units of a conducting replica of the scatterer. The criterion for occurrence of the resonance phenomenon is 3Fβo/β <<«1, in which the shape factor F = 4πC3 / 3V> 1 is minimum for a sphere. Dipole scattering is given in terms of the polarizability dyadic of a nonconducting replica of dielectric constant p/po, and is negligibly small in a neighborhood of the resonance frequency.

Distinctions in sound patterns of calls by killer whales (Orcinus Orca) from analysis of computer sound features Watkins, William A.; Daher, Mary Ann; DiMarzio, Nancy A.; Reppucci, Gina (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-03)Calls of killer whales, Orcinus orca, were analyzed using computed sound features to classify sound patterns and identify call similarties. Calls were classified and separated according to the podfamily group within clans ...
Seafloor character and sedimentary processes in eastern Long Island Sound and western Block Island Sound Poppe, Lawrence J.; DiGiacomo-Cohen, M. L.; Smith, Shepard M.; Stewart, H. F.; Forfinski, N. A. (2005-07-26)Multibeam bathymetric data and seismic-reflection profiles collected in eastern Long Island and western Block Island Sounds reveal previously unrecognized glacial features and modern bedforms. Glacial features include ...
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. ...
