Acoustic Sensing Techniques for the Shallow Water Environment

Acoustic Sensing Techniques for the Shallow Water Environment: Inversion Methods and Experiments by Andrea Caiti
English | August 29, 2006 | ISBN: 1402043724 | 332 pages | PDF | 31 MB

This volume contains thecollection of papers from the second workshop on Expe- mental Acoustic Inversion Techniques for Exploration of the Shallow Water Environment. The works hop the me followed the original conceptof the rstworkshop, heldin Carvoeiro, Portugal, in 1999, i.e., to focus on experiments and experimental techniques for acoustic sensing in the shallow ocean. More than forty leading international scientists were invited to meet in the picturesque town of St. Angelo on the island of Ischia, in June 2004, to discuss progress in the application of new experimental techniques for exploration and assessment of shallowwater environments. Acoustic techniques provide the most effective means for remote sensing of ocean and sea oor processes, and for probing the structure beneath the sea oor. No other energy propagates as ef ciently in the ocean: radio waves and visible light are severely limited in range because the ocean is a highly conductive medium. However, sound from bre- ing waves and coastal shipping can be heard throughout the ocean, and marine mammals communicate acoustically over basin scale distances.

Acoustic Interactions With Submerged Elastic Structures

Acoustic Interactions With Submerged Elastic Structures: Acoustic Propagation and Scattering, Wavelets and Time Frequency Analysis by Ardeshir Guran
World Scientific Pub Co Inc | July 2001 | English | ISBN: 981022950X | 444 pages | PDF | 16 MB

The interaction of acoustic fields with submerged elastic structures, both by propagation and scattering, is being investigated at various institutions and laboratories world-wide with ever-increasing sophistication of experiments and analysis. This book offers a collection of contributions from these research centres that represent the present state-of-the-art in the study of acoustic elastic interaction, being on the cutting edge of these investigations.

Vladimir Ussachevsky was one of the most significant pioneers in the composition of electronic music, and one of its most potent forces. Born in 1911 in Manchuria, China, Ussachevsky was the son of a Russian Army captain. His childhood was spent on the windswept and sparsely settled Manchurian plain, visiting with the nomadic tribesmen in their tents, and singing Old Slavonic chants as an altar boy in the local Russian Orthodox church. By the time he arrived in California, at the age of nineteen, he was a skilled pianist gifted in the interpretation of Romantic music, and a fluent improvisor. ……….
Unknown to Ussachevsky, the first experiments in tape and electronic music had begun two or three years earlier in France with the "musique concrète" of Pierre Schaeffer and Pierre Henry and, one year before, in Germany with the founding of the Cologne electronic-music studio by Herbert Eimert. Ussachevsky's first experiments began in 1951 when the Columbia Music Department acquired an Ampex 400 tape recorder, which together with a microphone, a pair of earphones, and a borrowed Magnecord recorder, constituted the entire equipment of the first American electronic-music studio. ……..
It is perhaps not far-fetched to describe Ussachevsky as one of the most enigmatic and self-effacing figures in new American music after World War II. He was an intensely personal man who combined Old World charm and courtliness with humor and American get-up-and-go. He talked little about himself or the fact that he had been brought up in an unusual time and place that had already ceased to exist.

In this comprehensive three-lesson set, Martin Simpson shows how he uses a variety of tunings to achieve a broad spectrum of musical and emotional effects. You'll learn his beautiful arrangements for Irish Airs, American banjo pieces, Scottish fiddle tunes and traditional English songs. While teaching these songs, Martin reveals his ideas about guitar musicianship and chord theory; how to get good tone; techniques for moving up and down the neck; the uses of movable scales and chords, hammers and pulls, harmonics. These videos will inspire guitarists of all levels and styles!
