Scientist Gallery

Underwater acoustics is a part of many marine research projects. Some scientists use sound to track ocean currents, identify potential obstacles or quantify fish distributions. Other projects don’t directly use sound, but listen to ocean noise or investigate how marine animals produce and hear sounds. The scientists listed below have given interviews for the Discovery of Sound in the Sea.
