Underwater Radiated Noise from Hydrofoils in Coastal Water

Underwater Radiated Noise from Hydrofoils in Coastal Water
Underwater Radiated Noise from Hydrofoils in Coastal Water
Underwater noise from commercial shipping throughout the oceans has been increasing over the past decades and the environmental impact of this noise remains an area of great uncertainty. This has led to the measurement of noise from commercial vessels in order to understand the impacts that they may engender. Hydrofoils are used by ferries in various locations around the world and locally may be a significant contributing factor of the soundscape . However, the investigation on underwater radiated noise from the activity of hydrofoils in the field has not been widely conducted. This article is an attempt to characterize the noise from hydrofoils in the field. Detailed measurements in the coastal water close to the Panarea port, Italy are reported. The investigation describes the broadband frequency spectrum with the main energy approximately centered on 30-130Hz but covering frequencies up to tens of kHz. A key result was that the spectrum of the noise varied between the three stages (displacement, transition, and foiling) of the hydrofoils heading into or out of the port.

Abstract

Underwater noise from commercial shipping throughout the oceans has been increasing over the past decades and the environmental impact of this noise remains an area of great uncertainty. This has led to the measurement of noise from commercial vessels in order to understand the impacts that they may engender. Hydrofoils are used by ferries in various locations around the world and locally may be a significant contributing factor of the soundscape . However, the investigation on underwater radiated noise from the activity of hydrofoils in the field has not been widely conducted. This article is an attempt to characterize the noise from hydrofoils in the field. Detailed measurements in the coastal water close to the Panarea port, Italy are reported. The investigation describes the broadband frequency spectrum with the main energy approximately centered on 30-130Hz but covering frequencies up to tens of kHz. A key result was that the spectrum of the noise varied between the three stages (displacement, transition, and foiling) of the hydrofoils heading into or out of the port.
