Abstract : An analog apparatus for determining the velocity of sound at a selected position in a liquid media is provided with a means for representing the conductivity, temperature, and depth of the position in the form of analog voltages, and is further provided with an analog calculating means receiving each of the voltages for calculating the velocity of sound as a function of conductivity, temperature, and depth. The sound velocity may be calculated at a succession of positions to provide a sound velocity versus depth profile of the liquid media. (Author)
