Sound Reflections is the most definitive text written on the subject of modern side scan sonar published to date. After becoming familiar with the basic theories and concepts of sonar and its propagation Sound Reflections is a must-have reference for those involved in the use of side scan sonar. Continuing with the clear and straightforward writing for which the authors are known, the helpful use of didactics and emboldment support an uncomplicated explanation of modern sonar technologies. Examples include analog and digital sonar data as well as that generated by chirp sonar and unmanned, untethered vehicles. The color and gray-scale illustrations are tied closely with explanations of data interpretation and system operations. The Glossary reflects many recent technological advances. I found this text invaluable in teaching commercial, Naval and other government clients modern sonar operations.”
