Construction and operation of low cost hydrophone for underwater sound detection

Authors(2) :-Yuvraj C. Mohite, P. N. Arotale

As industrial activities continue to grow on the coast, underwater sound measurements are becoming of great scientific importance as they are essential to evaluate the impact of these activities on local ecosystems. In this paper, the use of commercial underwater recorders is not always the most feasible alternative, due to their high cost and lack of flexibility. Design and construction of more affordable alternatives from scratch can become complex because it requires profound knowledge in areas such as electronics and low-level programming. With the aim of providing a solution, low-cost alternative to commercial recorders is proposed to build. A properly working prototype will be assembled and it will be demonstrating adequate performance levels. The underwater recording device can be successfully deploying at selected locations along the coast, where it adequately recorded animal and manmade acoustic events, among others.
