The Study of Sound Backscattering From Microinhomogeneities in Sea Water
The authors show that the use of a parametric source to measure backscattering from microinhomogeneities offers several advantages. By analyzing backscattering results obtained at a variety of signal frequencies and pulse lengths, it is possible to obtain the size distribution of both resonant and non resonant scatterers separately. - Ed.
