Underwater Acoustic Explorations At The University Of Rhode Island

The Southern New England Section of the American Society of Naval Engineers held its quarterly meeting recently in Groton, Conn. Dr. Foster H. Middleton, professor of ocean engineering at the University of Rhode Island (URI), presented an enjoyable program on recent experiences with underwater acoustic systems.

He described with slides how the interest and investigations of URI students, aided by such systems as side scan sonar, led to the discovery of British Revolutionary warship remains in Narragansett Bay. Other efforts mentioned by Dr. Middleton included inspecting trans-Atlantic cables, measuring wave heights on the Brent Reef Tower, assessing oil recovery effectiveness, and experimenting with side scan sonar patterns. A question and discussion period followed for the 25 members and guests in attendance. Section chairman David Motherway acted as moderator.
