Underwater Acoustics

The Technical Committee on Underwater Acoustics is concerned with both natural and anthropogenic sound and its generation underwater; and the propagation, reflection and scattering of sound in the underwater environment including the seabed and the sea surface.

The Underwater Acoustics Technical Committee Open Meeting is typically held at every ASA meeting on Thursday at 8:00 pm.

Alex is the current ASA Student Council Rep for Underwater Acoustics. Alex’s research focuses on the acoustic scattering properties of gas bubbles in a fluid medium and understating how bubble properties (e.g., bubble shape, bubble coating, etc.) affect their acoustic response.
