Cabled Observatories: An Ideal Platform for Acoustic Devices

Dewey, Richard
May 2012
Sea Technology;May2012, p7
The author discusses the resurgence of acoustic system applications for deep-sea sounding due to advancements in cabled ocean observatories in the U.S. He states that specialized signals for environmental monitoring are transmitted and received by active acoustic technology. The author notes that adaptive configuration for optimized performance can be supported by interactive capabilities of science-driven cabled observatories.
