Paper Abstract

The design and performance of single element fiber optic hydrophones for shallow water applications is described. Hydrophone responsivities up to -113.8 dB re rad/?Pa were measured while maintaining a usable depth capability. A system with this design of hydrophone is being used to monitor the deterioration of water carrying siphons in Arizona.
