Scientists devise way to relay sound signals under water
Engineers use ocean channel to efficiently relay sound
First impressions of my first research cruise
Did dispersants help microbes break down oil?
Instrument may also help monitor sewage treatment plants
Animation demonstrates how the SOFAR channel works to efficiently transmit sound energy from earthquakes and whales (with actual sounds of earthquakes recorded by hydrophones). (Animation by Jack Cook, WHOI for NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory)
