Cavitation and cetacean
Bubbles are the most acoustically active naturally occurring entities in the ocean, and cetaceans are the most intelligent. Having evolved over tens of millions of years to cope with the underwater acoustic environment, cetaceans may have developed techniques from which we could learn. This paper outlines some of the possible interactions, ranging from the exploitation of acoustics in bubble nets to trap prey, to techniques for echolocating in bubbly water, to the possibility that man-made sonar signals could be responsible for bubble generation and death within cetaceans.

Abstract

Bubbles are the most acoustically active naturally occurring entities in the ocean, and cetaceans are the most intelligent. Having evolved over tens of millions of years to cope with the underwater acoustic environment, cetaceans may have developed techniques from which we could learn. This paper outlines some of the possible interactions, ranging from the exploitation of acoustics in bubble nets to trap prey, to techniques for echolocating in bubbly water, to the possibility that man-made sonar signals could be responsible for bubble generation and death within cetaceans.
