SMMI - LR Seminar Series 2015

Gas bubbles in liquids have an extraordinary ability to interact with sound fields. Bubbles generate the song of a babbling brook, and ocean sounds that help us understand the global carbon budget. Such bubbles also confound sonar in shallow water, but dolphins appear to be able to echolocate effectively in bubbly water. This talk explores how this might be achieved, and how bubbles activated by ultrasound can assist industrial processing, or aid medical diagnosis and therapy.
