The image of the acoustic field near a driven, submerged plate has been obtained experimentally using underwater nearfield holography. In addition to a discussion of the results, this paper develops theoretical explanation, for mechanical and acoustical processes, and describes aspects of the work which may be of interest to others attempting similiar experiments.
