Broad-Band Source on Hoke Seamount
( software )

On November 9, 2001, an experimental broad-band swept-frequency sound source designed by Webb Associates was tested by researchers from the Naval Post-Graduate School in Monterey. CA. The acoustic signals from this source as received at Pioneer Seamount are shown here. The timing accuracy obtainable with this signal is discussed, with reference to its usefulness in measuring ocean parameters such as temperature and current.
