Marine mammal calls often propagate through bubbly water, be it generated under breaking waves, wakes, or even by the mammals themselves. Two hypothetical circumstances are of particular interest: the possible use of acoustic signals to trap prey in bubble nets; and the
possible ability of dolphin sonar to operate in bubbly water (such as the surf zone) that would confound the best man-made sonar, despite the fact that the dolphins possess ‘hardware’ which is comparatively mediocre
