Combining passive and active underwater acoustics with video and laser optics to assess fish stocks

OCEANS 2006, 2006

Today, fisheries research and management rely heavily upon the use of age- structured models to make deterministic estimates of the abundance of fish stocks. Scientists freely admit that these estimates are highly uncertain because they lack the means to measure the stock with precision to verify the predictions. Assessment of fish stocks with active acoustics has been practiced for nearly ...


The study of focusing resolution with time reversal mirror in underwater acoustics

2010 International Conference on Information, Networking and Automation (ICINA), 2010

The focusing resolution effects of time reversal mirror (TRM) are studied based on time-reversal focusing theory. Using the coherence of multi-path the effective aperture of TRM is enlarged and focusing gain can be obtained more than 10dB. Focusing resolution with a TRM through random medium is much better than that obtained in homogeneous medium.


Underwater acoustics for ecosystem research: Synthesis of current knowledge and current advances and perspectives in Northeast Brazil

2017 IEEE/OES Acoustics in Underwater Geosciences Symposium (RIO Acoustics), 2017

  • Combining passive and active underwater acoustics with video and laser optics to assess fish stocks

    Today, fisheries research and management rely heavily upon the use of age- structured models to make deterministic estimates of the abundance of fish stocks. Scientists freely admit that these estimates are highly uncertain because they lack the means to measure the stock with precision to verify the predictions. Assessment of fish stocks with active acoustics has been practiced for nearly four decades but the method is still limited due to the difficulty in repeating the survey estimates and obtaining biological information on the acoustic targets. In Prince William Sound, Alaska, we have been making precise measures of the Pacific herring stock using quasi- continuous, underwater acoustics and discrete purse seines samples for over a decade to assess the level of uncertainty in the model predictions. Commercial purse seines are used to collect information on the identification and size of the individual fish targets, which are needed to convert the echo integration values into fish biomass. However, the net sampling for biological information is logistically difficult, expensive, and is discrete so it reduces the amount of survey coverage by the more continuous acoustic surveying. For these reasons, it is difficult to conduct net sampling on a level that provides a representative sample of the acoustic targets. We have had some success using underwater video cameras to identify the species of acoustic targets and others have combined of lasers with underwater video to measure the size of individual fish using SCUBA. We are now combining lasers with the video and testing the use of downriggers as stealth, means of towing the sensors during acoustic surveys. If successful, this will eliminate the need for discrete sampling with nets on our acoustic surveys of Pacific herring

  • Underwater acoustics for ecosystem research: Synthesis of current knowledge and current advances and perspectives in Northeast Brazil

    While used in routine for fish biomass assessment in a variety of marine laboratories, underwater acoustics have an unrealized potential for multi- component observations of abiotic and biotic ecosystem characteristics. A growing number of studies is taking advantage of recent improvements (e.g. multifrequency, broad band echosounders) to simultaneously characterize physical structures (e.g. thin layers, internal waves, eddies) and organisms (from zooplankton to whales) patterns of distribution across scales from meters to thousands of kilometers. These progresses open a variety of perspectives for understanding complex processes. In this context, the aim of this short note is twofold: (i) provide examples of the application of `ecosystem acoustics' to describe and quantify complex processes; and (ii) present the current advances and perspective of the application of ecosystem acoustic in Northeast Brazil.

  • Matched arrival processing for efficient inversion in underwater acoustics

    The focus of this paper is on the linearization of the inverse problem in underwater acoustics. The authors develop a simple inversion method for source range and depth estimation. The method identifies the time arrivals of the direct and first surface reflected ray paths in the true ocean impulse response and compares them to corresponding arrivals in a replica impulse response. Through the linearization of the relationship between time arrival difference and source location parameters, the source location is estimated efficiently and accurately.

  • Underwater acoustics positioning using surface multipath

    A new acoustic navigation method is proposed which utilizes surface reflected signals for position fixing. In this method, precise angular measurements of arrival angles of direct path and multipath signals are performed and used to find the relative position of the source. Reflection from a rough surface is considered, and the effect on nonspecular scattering is discussed. The main advantage of this approach is that the acoustic source can be a free running pinger rather than a transponder. This reduces the system's complexity and cost. Furthermore, the bandwidth of the system can be considerably reduced, and therefore its range can be increased.<<ETX>>

  • Challenges and issues in underwater acoustics sensor networks: A review

    The Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks (UWASN) consists of sensors that are deployed underwater for gathering information for the unexplored parts of oceans or rivers. UWASN consists of variable number of floating and anchored sensors, sink and vehicles that are deployed over an area to be explored. The characteristics of UWASN are mainly node mobility for floating, capacity for data collection and recording and autonomous vehicles which are battery operable. The communication is possible among underwater devices through optical waves, radio waves, electromagnetic and acoustics. Out of these, acoustics communication is best suited as it can carry digital information through underwater channel and can travel to longer distances. The communication can be classified in two parts: Single and multi hoping. But in underwater we use multi-hop communication for sending data from end nodes to sink nodes. The various challenges to UWASN are limited bandwidth, multipath fading, limited battery, limited data capacity and delay in propagation. Hence, in this paper we have focussed on various issues and challenges in underwater wireless sensor networks for acoustic communications.

  • Simulation of communication system for underwater acoustics

    Discusses communications from a transmitter to a receiver, one or both may be mobile. The authors describe the channel simulator, which takes into account the horizontal and vertical receiver movement and the bandpass modulation to reconstruct the interference generated by multipath propagation. Those interferences represent the most difficult problem in underwater communication. The authors present some modulation schemes MPSK and MFSK with frequency hopping.

  • Tuning genetic algorithms for underwater acoustics using a priori statistical information

    We present a new technique for the evaluation/selection procedures of genetic algorithms, to be used in the context of parameter estimation problems. The proposed algorithm uses a priori information about the structure of the surface of which an extremum is being searched. For parameter estimation problems, the availability, at each iteration of a genetic algorithm, of a collection of samples of the ambiguity surface of the problem, enables the determination of the correlation between the observed ambiguity surface (at the sampled points) and the predicted ambiguity surface. The consideration of this information allows early detection of secondary extrema (which yield an ambiguity surface which does not correlate well with the observed one) and thus contributes to speed the convergence of the algorithm to the global optimal values. The paper applies the proposed technique to a source localization problem.
