Abstract : Volume reverberation measurements were made utilizing explosive sources and an omnidirectional receiver in the Caribbean Sea along the Aves Ridge during June 1974 and February through March 1977. This report presents results of those measurements in the form of scattering strength profiles and column strengths for one-third octave bands. Comparisons are made between the two sets of data and previous data taken in the same area. Discrete biological net tows at one station are also compared to peak scattering depths.
