what is hydroacoustics?
Hydroacoustics is a general term for the study and application of sound in water. Hydroacoustics, utilizing SONAR technology, is most commonly used for detection, assessment, and monitoring of underwater physical and biological objects.
case studies & applications
Our Case Studies & Applications showcase real-world projects and studies featuring hydroacoustic monitoring techniques employed by scientists and resource professionals around the world. We’ve organized this ever growing collection of studies into an easy to use matrix by aquatic environment - Lakes, Rivers, and Marine - and by object of study – Fish/Plankton, Vegetation, Bottom Classification, Bathymetry, Hydrokinetic Environmental Monitoring, and Other Applications. We’re interested in learning about your work - contact us if you would like to share your hydroacoustic assessment experience.
Our Document Library contains reports, articles, abstracts, and papers on a wide variety of hydroacoustic assessment topics, and is a valuable source of information for students, researchers, and those interested in reviewing literature in the field of hydroacoustics.
In Soundings, the BioSonics Newsletter, we reach out to our clients and associates. Soundings features, user news, BioSonics product updates, a link to the BioSonics GSA Advantage Product Listing, as well as a listing of upcoming meetings, workshops and conferences of interest to Hydroacoustic Users.
