Biological processes and physical characteristics associated with seagrass can greatly affect acoustic propagation in coastal regions. An important acoustical effect is due to bubble production by the plants, which can have significant impact on both object detection and bottom mapping sonars by increasing clutter through reflection, absorption, and scattering of sound. In addition to photosynthesis bubbles and gas-bearing leaf tissue in the water column, the plant rhizomes also containdoi:10.1121/2.0000583 fatcat:c2qe4ntcp5ecjfdqzvzgbt37nm
