Sonar Demonstration -- Human Sound Wave part of Cutting Edge:Oceanography:Activities
Sonar technology allowed scientists to produce high-resolution maps of the sea floor for the first time. This sonar demonstration uses a Human Sound Wave to image the "sea floor" in a lecture hall. In doing so, students can see two-way travel times collected and plotted in real time. Students also evaluate sources of error that can be applied to a real sonar device.

Catalog description: Survey of the world oceans with emphasis on geologic processes. Also includes chemical, physical, and biological aspects of the sea. Investigates human interaction with the marine environment.
