Paper Abstract

Supported by ONR, for the past two decades many researchers have been involved in 'imaging' underwater with background noise, 'Acoustic Daylight'. In the January 1996 issue of Scientific America, Dr. Buckingham and others published an article indicating that it is feasible to image underwater with background noise. Since then, many authors have published their successes in imaging underwater in Acoustic Daylight. In this paper, the author will discus his acoustic noise experiments in Kaneohe Bay with Dr. W. Au. The author presents his findings based on the theory of resonance and/or resonant scattering theory. Based on resonance technique, it appears that underwater targets can be detected and may be identified in background noise, Acoustic Daylight.
