Sound In the Sea
Light travels only a few hundred meters into the ocean before it is absorbed. Sound can travel long distances and with great speed underwater. Oceanographers, submariners, whales, dolphins, seals, in short, all working or living in the ocean rely on sound to sense their surrounds, to communicate, and to navigate. This web site will introduce you to the science and uses of Sound in the Sea.

Project Oceanica
