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