Is there any modern information about a 12-hour periodicity in sonar noise?

I have a copy of Principles of underwater sound by Urick, 3rd edition. In the chapter on The noise background of the sea: ambient noise level, on pages 215/216, it says "The analysis of data in ...

How can i identify number of return of the ping in the sonar?

I am writing a fake function which is actually doing active pinging (basically SONAR). I am little confuse here about how to identify the number of sonar return i got ? Let's say i am continuously ...

Doppler Shift and the Pulse Repetition Interval

Suppose that I have a signal $x(t)$ consisting of $N$ pulses at a given frequency $\omega_{c}$. I space them $T$ seconds apart, ie the Pulse Repetition Interval (PRI) for the waveform is $T$. Now ...

Echo detection for localization

I was reading about active sonar and couldn't quite understand how the echos are recognized. My doubt is, when the sound signal is reflected back, it is greatly attenuated and distorted due to many ...
