FIG. 1.

(a) Geometry of the bistatic acoustic imaging system in an ocean waveguide. (b) 3D spatial configuration of a large herring group containing 7831 individuals uniformly distributed within a volume similar to an ellipsoid that has axes dimensions of Lx  = 100 m, Ly 1 = 125 m, and Lz 1 = 33.33 m, but with cross-range and depth extents cut at ± 50 m and ± 10 m, respectively, to the center of the herring group. The plotted volume has dimensions of Lx  = 100 m, Ly  = 100 m, and Lz  = 20 m. (c) Modeled broadband two-way transmission loss TTLW calculated using Eq. (6) from a source array to potential fish locations and from the fish locations back to the receiver array center is shown as a function of fish range and depth in the Gulf of Maine environment for a source waveform of 50 Hz bandwidth centered at fc  = 950 Hz. (d) The TTLW obtained by first averaging the broadband two way propagated acoustic intensities over a 20 m thick fish layer centered at zs  = 150 m depth and then taking the log transform following Eq. (8). The error bars indicate one standard deviation in the broadband TTLW over the depth layer of the fish.

Effect of varying inter-fish spacing on the school target strength spectra for a small fish group containing 13 individuals. The mean inter-fish spacings are (a) one fish body length, d = 40 cm, (b) quarter fish body length, d = 10 cm, and (c) 4 times the fish body length, d = 1.6 m. The coherent, incoherent, total and estimated school target strength spectra are calculated via Eqs. (2)–(5), respectively.

FIG. 3.

(a) The real and imaginary parts of the complex scattering amplitude S(k)/k for a herring of mean swimbladder volume 3.68 ml. (b) The target strengths of fish with mean swimbladdder volume (black) and of fish with swimbladder volumes both 1 standard deviation larger (light gray) and smaller (dark gray) than the mean. The ensemble-averaged target strength (dash-dotted black), obtained by averaging over the scattering cross-sections of all fish in the group is also plotted. The normalized histograms (by total number of fish N = 10 000) of (c) the fork length and (d) swimbladder volume for the herring group. The swimbladder volume shown in (d) is inferred from (c) and taking into account the depth of each individual fish in the group given a known neutral buoyancy depth at 85 m using Eq. (5) and (B6), where p = 3.35 × 10−6 and q = 3.35 are empirically determined from length and weight measurements of trawl samples (Ref. 1).

The fish scattered intensities are compared to the expected background reverberation estimated from GOME06 data. (c) Identical to (b) but plotted in logarithmic scale. The error bar indicates the standard deviation of the broadband matched filtered fully scattered intensities from the fish group.

Effect of varying the imaging frequency band on the incoherent matched filtered scattered returns from a fish group. (a) The areal density of the fish group. (b) The incoherent fully scattered intensity Var[Ψs(tM )] that includes multiple scattering and singly scattered intensity Var from the fish group are plotted as a function of the imaging frequency band. The expected background reverberant intensity estimated from GOME06 data is also plotted for comparison. The background reverberation varies by roughly 2 to 3 dB from the lowest to the highest frequency band and the average across the 4 bands is plotted here.
