Reverberation in both rooms and the sea is the persistence of sound caused by reflection and scattering at the boundaries and other inhomogeneities. The sea, bounded by its surface and its bottom, may be imagined to be a room in which sound persists in somewhat the same way as it does in air. The analogies and differences between reverberation in rooms and in the sea are examined in this paper. They suggest that some of the well-known concepts of room acoustics may be applied, to some extent, to underwater sound reverberation.
