NDERWATER ACOUSTICS IS one of the most productive fields of acoustics.
U The great number of papers on underwater acoustic topics published every
year and ther of international conferences held on aspects of underwater
acoustics confirm the viability of this field of scientific endeavour.
On the European scene research and development in underwater acoustics re­
ceived a great push forward with the establishment of the European Community's
scientific programme on Marine Science and Technology (MAST). What before
was a scattered national research and development activity with its scientific re­
sults mostly being presented at national acoustical society meetings, now became
an international cooperation involving universities, research institutes and industri­
al companies in the countries belonging to the European Community. Apart from
bringing research groups in underwater acoustics from various European countries
together in unified research teams, the MAST programme has contributed consid­
erably to the raise in the level of quality in underwater acoustics research in Europe
which has occurred over recent years.
The high quality of research and the considerably increased activity level in
underwater acoustics in Europe called for a forum for presentation of the European
scientific results. Spawned by the need for this forum the series ofn
Conferences on Underwater Acoustics were formed, with the first conference held
in Luxembourg in September 1992.
This Conference, held at the Technical University of Denmark during the days
4-8 July 1994, is the 2nd in the series. The large number of high-quality papers
received by the Scientific Committee of the 2nd European Conference on Underwa­
ter Acoustics was very encouraging, but it also made it difficult for the Committee
to select the very best for presentation in oral and poster sessions. I feel, however,
that we have achieved a first class scientific programme representing the state-of-
the-art in underwater acoustics, a programme to be preserved to the future through
the value of the papers published in these Proceedings.
The Conference will comprise papers related to all major areas of research in un­
derwater acoustics. The plenarys given by professor Walter H. Munk and by
professor Henrik Schmidt deal with the exploitation of acoustics for thermometry
of the oceans and for studies of the influence of the ice cover on underwater sound
propagation in the Arctic regions. Like the results presented in the plenary paper-
s, the scientific results given in the 172 oral and poster presentations published in
these Proceedings are of current interest. The presentations have been distribut­
ed on sessions covering topics like ambient noise, reverberation, scattering, sound
propagation modeling and mesasurements, transducers and instrumentation, data Preface
acquisition and processing, imaging, underwater communication, sonar in fisheries
and in off­shore activities, acoustics in marine geology and geophysics, and tomog­
raphy. The papers contributed to the 2nd European Conference on Underwater
Acoustics and published in these Proceedings come ­ apart from countries in the
European Union ­ from the EFTA countries, from countries in Central and Eastern
Europe, from USA, from Canada, from North and South Africa, from India, from
China, etc.
A conference like the 2nd European Conference on Underwater Acoustics can
only be organized as the result of a teamwork. The Conference has been co­
sponsored by the Commission of the European Communities, by FASE and by the
major acoustical societies in Europe. Dr. Marco Weydert has been of immense as­
sistance in paving the road for the Proceedings. I am very grateful to Dr. Weydert
for a perfect cooperation through all phases of preparations for the Conference.
The Scientific Committee, consisting of G.B. Cannelli, R. Carbó, Κ. Kremer, J.R.
Nedwell, J. Papadakis, M. Weydert and M. Zakharia, contributed greatly to the
definition of topics and to the selection of papers to be presented at the Confer­
ence. The timely support from all members of the Scientific Committee is greatly
The heavy burden of all the small tasks which together bring about an inter­
national conference was carried by the Local Organizing Committee, consisting of
Irina Κ. Bjørnø, Søren Engelbrecht and Peter Louring Nielsen with temporary help
from Vibeke Unmack and Ulrik Gullacksen. Their contribution over the last one
and a half year of the count­down to the Conference is highly acknowledged.
The contributions to the Conference from the European Union, from RESON
A/S, from SAS, from Tuborg Breweries A/S and from the City of Copenhagen are
gratefully acknowledged.
It is my hope, that the Proceedings ­ in two volumes ­ of the 2nd European
Conference on Underwater Acoustics will be received by the international under­
water acoustics community with the same enthusiasm and interest as shown by all
contributors of papers to these Proceedings. May these Proceedings be a valuable
source of information on Underwater Acoustics in the years to come.
