Velocity of the Sound

  • Sound Velocity (SV) is the speed of acoustic waves in a medium. In this case, the medium in question is water.
  • The speed of acoustic waves in seawater varies both horizontally and vertically at any time.
  • Sound Velocity in water is strongly influenced by temperature, salinity, and depth of water. The difference in sound velocity causes the water column to look like a “layer cake”.
