Acoustical oceanography is the use of underwater sound to study the sea, its boundaries and its contents.
Alexander Behm (11 November 1880 in Sternberg (Mecklenburg) – 22 January 1952 in Tarp (Schleswig-Flensburg)) was a German physicist who developed working ocean echo sounder in Germany at the same time Reginald Fessenden was doing so in North America.
An autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) is a robot that travels underwater without requiring input from an operator.
Bathymetry is the study of underwater depth of lake or ocean floors.
Depth sounding refers to the act of measuring depth.
A fathom is a unit of length in the imperial and the U.S. customary systems equal to, used especially for measuring the depth of water.
A Fessenden oscillator is an electro-acoustic transducer invented by Reginald Fessenden, with development starting in 1912 at the Submarine Signal Company of Boston.
Fisheries acoustics includes a range of research and practical application topics using acoustical devices as sensors in aquatic environments.
A fishfinder or sounder (Australia) is an instrument used to locate fish underwater by detecting reflected pulses of sound energy, as in sonar.
Fishing is the activity of trying to catch fish.
Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit of time.
Herbert Grove Dorsey (April 24, 1876 – 1961) was an American engineer, inventor and physicist.
Hydroacoustics is the study and application of sound in water.
Hydrographic survey is the science of measurement and description of features which affect maritime navigation, marine construction, dredging, offshore oil exploration/offshore oil drilling and related activities.
Hydrography is the branch of applied sciences which deals with the measurement and description of the physical features of oceans, seas, coastal areas, lakes and rivers, as well as with the prediction of their change over time, for the primary purpose of safety of navigation and in support of all other marine activities, including economic development, security and defence, scientific research, and environmental protection.
The International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) is the inter-governmental organisation representing hydrography.
John Wiley & Sons, Inc., also referred to as Wiley, is a global publishing company that specializes in academic publishing.
A multibeam echosounder is a type of sonar that is used to map the seabed.
An ocean (the sea of classical antiquity) is a body of saline water that composes much of a planet's hydrosphere.
A patent is a set of exclusive rights granted by a sovereign state or intergovernmental organization to an inventor or assignee for a limited period of time in exchange for detailed public disclosure of an invention.
In the broadest definition, a sensor is a device, module, or subsystem whose purpose is to detect events or changes in its environment and send the information to other electronics, frequently a computer processor.
Sonar (originally an acronym for SOund Navigation And Ranging) is a technique that uses sound propagation (usually underwater, as in submarine navigation) to navigate, communicate with or detect objects on or under the surface of the water, such as other vessels.
In physics, sound is a vibration that typically propagates as an audible wave of pressure, through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid.
Note: This page refers to the device used to measure the speed of sound in water for use in hydrography A sound velocity probe is a device that is used for measuring the speed of sound, specifically in the water column, for oceanographic and hydrographic research purposes.
The speed of sound is the distance travelled per unit time by a sound wave as it propagates through an elastic medium.
Springer Publishing is an American publishing company of academic journals and books, focusing on the fields of nursing, gerontology, psychology, social work, counseling, public health, and rehabilitation (neuropsychology).
A transducer is a device that converts energy from one form to another.
The uncertainty budget is an aid for specifying the expanded measurement uncertainty.
Underwater acoustics is the study of the propagation of sound in water and the interaction of the mechanical waves that constitute sound with the water and its boundaries.
Water is a transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of Earth's streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms.
