Attenuation of sound in seawater vs. temperature and frequency.
Attenuation of sound in seawater:
- Noise is usually defined as unwanted sound - noise, noise generation, silencers and attenuation in HVAC systems.
- Speed of sound in air at standard atmospheric pressure with temperatures ranging -40 to 1000 °C (-40 to 1500 °F) - Imperial and SI Units.
- Speed of sound in common fluids like water, glycerol, kerosene and more.
- Salinity - salt content - of fresh, brackish and sea water.
- Seawater properties like density, saturation pressure, specific heat, electrical conductivity and absolute viscosity.
- The speed and attenuation of sound in moist air varies with sound frequency and air humidity.
- Altitude and speed of sound, temperature and pressure.
