Summary:

The use of active acoustic instruments to measure interactions of marine animals and seabirds around marine energy devices can be difficult due to high water flows around the energy generating devices. In particular, turbulence may destabilize data streams or result in loss of data; determining the level of interference from these effects is challenging. Researchers in several nations are experimenting with removing the turbulence and other background sounds from acoustic data from multibeam, single beam, split beam sonar, and acoustic cameras.  Others believe the data can be processed along with the turbulence measurements, providing valuable outputs.
