    Abstract. The anatomy of the dolphin head is characterized by many unique adaptations to their aquatic environment. I comparison to the mammalian bauplan, the most relevant modifications of the head are adaptations regarding the sonar-related structures of the dolphin nose (epicranial complex) and the ear as well as the eye.   Dolphins navigate using sonar-sonar that “outperforms any man-made system, particularly in shallow water, “ according to the article. Based on the theorized but as yet unverified idea that dolphins use their teeth to improve sonar navigation, Dobbins modeled dolphin jaws to investigate the “endfire array” concept.

The Sonar of Dolphins Whitlow Au Google Books ~ Soon the alluring but range from auditory pathways and processes to anatomy of the dolphins head to signal pro unfounded myth began to surface that dolphins cessing models to a comparison of the sonar of are the smartest of animals with an intelligence approaching and perhaps surpassing that of bats and dolphins humans.

Sonar is important in allowing dolphins to send out clicks, trills and whistles to one another. When a dolphin is in his infancy, his mother may send him the same whistle over and over again to.

Unlike humans, however, dolphins have been using this skill, known as biosonar, for they're pretty darn good at it. The tricks of sonar are built into their DNA, so much so that they can tell the difference between a BB gun pellet and a kernel of corn from 50 feet away [source: Gasperini].A dolphin's sonar process, also used by bats and some whales, is called echolocation.

The sonar of dolphins. [Whitlow W L Au] -- The extraordinary ability of dolphins to echolocate has fascinated scientists and the public since its discovery in the late 's. This book summarizes modern research in this area, and presents a.

dolphins have extraordinary sonar capabilities. The source of this performance is not clear, but the dolphin has several clear advantages: the sonar is mounted on a “platform” (the dolphin’s body) that is very agile and so can interrogate a target from many different angles; and the processing is undertaken in a brain that has.

Book August only the capability of the total sonar system can be evaluated. The dolphin sonar system can also be subdivided into the same three major components, and here as well the Author: Whitlow Au. This is the first book to summarize modern research in this area, and presents a broad synthesis of this very interdisciplinary subject.

The author is an internationally-recognized expert on dolphin sonar and is thus in a unique position to bring together research on the physiological, mathematical and engineering aspects of the : $ Inspired by the natural sonar of the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), scientists are developing underwater acoustic systems to solve problems that lie beyond the capabilities of existing technology.

Consider: The dolphin’s sonar allows it to find fish hiding in sand on the seabed and to distinguish between a fish and a rock. This is the first book to summarize modern research in this area, and presents a broad synthesis of this very interdisciplinary subject. The author is an internationally-recognized expert on dolphin sonar and is thus in a unique position to bring together research on the physiological, mathematical and engineering aspects of the subject.5/5(1).

Dolphins feed chiefly on fish and squid, which they track using echolocation, a built-in sonar that bounces sound waves off prey and reveals information like its location, size, and shape.

Saving Dolphins With Sonar. A device used by the British Navy to mark minefields has been repurposed to keep sonar-equipped marine animals out of fishing nets.

By Matt Ransford. The book covers interesting scientific facts about Dolphins from their brain size (larger than humans) to their amazing physiology which almost allows for regeneration and pain-free trauma. She also describes Dr. Lily's amazing This was an interesting book, but the over emphasis on the "spiritual" side of Dolphins left a little to be desired.4/5().

Whitlow W. Au (J – Febru ) was a leading expert in bioacoustics specializing in biosonar of odontocetes (dolphins, porpoises, and toothed whales). He is author of the widely known book The Sonar of Dolphins () and, with Mardi Hastings, Principles of Marine Bioacoustics ().

The sonar task for dolphins perceiving their environment involves detection, localization, discrimination, and recognition of objects of interest. Target information such as range, azimuth, direction of movement, speed, and size should also be of interest.

Bottlenose dolphins and California sea lions are the main animals used, and are kept at the base in San Diego. Dolphins have powerful biological sonar, unmatched by artificial sonar technology in detecting objects in the water column and on the sea lions lack this, but have very sensitive underwater directional hearing and exceptional vision in low-light conditions.

Scientific American calls military sonar, "rolling walls of noise."For the dolphins, whom researchers have documented as "self-aware," noting that they "call each other by name," this is a brutal and inhumane death sentence. For whales, such as the great blue, who can communicate over thousands of miles, such sonic stress affects reproduction and communication so much that some .Echolocation is a sensory sonar system that dolphins use for communication and for locating things in their environment.

Dolphins release a focused beam of clicking sounds (sound waves) and then listen to .
