Calculates the acoustic target strength of an elastic sphere immersed in a fluid
The sphereTS package calculates the acoustic target strength (TS) of elastic spheres immersed in a fluid. It is intended for calculating the TS of the spheres used for calibrating echosounders used for quantitative estimates of marine organism backscatter.
There are two ways to use this package:
- Call the functions in the sphereTS.py file from your code and use the results as required
- Run sphereTSGUI.py and use the GUI to generate sphere TS estimates
These packages are required for the non-GUI part:
and these for the GUI part:
