Oceans cover most of the Earth. The last decades have seen a host of wonderful discoveries, most of them using sound and sonars. This talk will present examples from around the world, taken from the presenter’s own research. The first part of the talk will present the innovative sensors (many of UK design) which have revolutionised our knowledge of the Blue Planet and its seabeds, from mid-ocean ridges to coastal areas. The second part will focus on applications, including the understanding of past tsunamis (and when they might happen again), marine habitats and the migrations of grey whales, as well as the role of acoustic sensors in monitoring the effects of climate change and human activities as far as the Arctic.
