Four hydrophone array for acoustic three-dimensional location
MetadataShow full item record
KeywordUnderwater acoustics; Hydrophone; Three-dimensional locations; Array; Ambient noise; Instruments
This report describes a non-rigid, floating, four-hydrophone array that can give accurate three-dimensional locations for certain underwater sound sources, particularly for those that are close. For more distant sounds, the array can indicate good directions (bearings) but range is liable to be uncertain. A system for concurrent calibration permits periodic reassessment of hydrophone positions. Appendix: Programming and mathematics for computer analysis of the array data are by Donna Ekstrand and Mary Hunt.

Experimental evidence of three-dimensional acoustic propagation caused by nonlinear internal waves Frank, Scott D.; Badiey, Mohsen; Lynch, James F.; Siegmann, William L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-08)The 1995 SWARM experiment collected high quality environmental and acoustic data. One goal was to investigate nonlinear internal wave effects on acoustic signals. This study continues an investigation of broadband airgun ...
Measurement and modeling of three-dimensional sound intensity variations due to shallow-water internal waves Badiey, Mohsen; Katsnelson, Boris G.; Lynch, James F.; Pereselkov, Serguey; Siegmann, William L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-02)Broadband acoustic data (30–160 Hz) from the SWARM'95 experiment are analyzed to investigate acoustic signal variability in the presence of ocean internal waves. Temporal variations in the intensity of the received signals ...
