Bubble acoustics
Gas bubbles are the most powerful acoustical sources and sensors that occur naturally in liquids. The potent interaction between bubbles and sound fields is exploited in applications as diverse as monitoring the transfer of greenhouses gases between atmosphere and ocean using the sounds of breaking ocean waves, to monitoring blood flow in the body by scattering ultrasound of bubbles injected into the patient. In the natural world, whales and dolphins go to extraordinary lengths of exploit this potent interaction, for example when trying to trap prey in the bubble nets they blow. Industry exploits this interaction in numerous ways, a new ultrasonic cleaning technology being used as an example.

Abstract

Gas bubbles are the most powerful acoustical sources and sensors that occur naturally in liquids. The potent interaction between bubbles and sound fields is exploited in applications as diverse as monitoring the transfer of greenhouses gases between atmosphere and ocean using the sounds of breaking ocean waves, to monitoring blood flow in the body by scattering ultrasound of bubbles injected into the patient. In the natural world, whales and dolphins go to extraordinary lengths of exploit this potent interaction, for example when trying to trap prey in the bubble nets they blow. Industry exploits this interaction in numerous ways, a new ultrasonic cleaning technology being used as an example.
