Abstract : The patent relates to an apparatus for the attenuation of motion induced, spurious, hydrophone signals resulting from cable vibrations induced by relative water flow motions over the cable. It includes a radially outstanding and spirally disposed ridge or ridges running over that length of the cable that is exposed to flow with a sizable cross-flow component.
