### 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 ...

### Alternatives to MFCCs for Sonar Classification?

Currently I am processing sonar (.wav) files into MFCC features using the librosa library. I use these features as input for sonar classification. Are there any alternatives to MFCCs -- other ...

### What is the best technique for underwater imaging?

I am currently researching what the best method to take underwater images/video is. The papers I have read go into several different methods: Lidar, Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS), optical camera plus ...

### 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 ...

### How to remove echo/reflected-sound caused by stationary objects when building a ultrasound based radar

I am emitting ultrasound with a speaker and am trying to track moving objects with a microphone array by detecting doppler shifts. I have succeeded to detect movement. However, to detect the direction ...

### How to extract a signal received from a given angle by two microphones

Please bear with me, as I'm only a programmer, and have no knowledge of signal processing as a discipline. I have an application which generates a short pulse of 12 kHz frequency sound from a single ...

### Use of USRP SDR to process sonar?

I have ordered a USRP kit to do radio signal processing in software. Is there a way to use the same device to process sonar data? What would I do upconvert the sonar to 50 MHz?
