KeywordSound -- Transmission
The first sounds to arrive at the receiver commence at low intensity and with long intervals between them. Gradually 1 the interval shortens, the sounds become louder until they blend in to one loud sound which ceases abruptly. This peak cut-off is so marked, that when recorded on suitable equipment synchronized with an accurate time piece, the instant of its occurrence may be determined within an accuracy of .01 seconds. In this report, all computations will be based on this interval as a limit of accuracy attainable.

Cornell, Sidney (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1947-09-01)The use of the natural sound channel in the oceans in transmitting sound signals over distances as great as 3000 miles is known as SOFAR. The sound signal is initiated at the axis of the sound channel by some sort of bomb ...
Ewing, W. Maurice; Worzel, J. Lamar (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1945-08-25)Experiments are described to demonstrate a new method of sonic signalling at extremely long ranges in the oceans, utilizing the natural sound channel. Signals were made by causing a four pound charge of TNT to explode at ...
Ewing, W. Maurice (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1941-02-01)During the last 20 years or more commercial and naval ships have made increasing use of a variety of instruments in which the transmission of sound in sea water plays an important part. Throughout this development the ...
