Whale Heads, Magnetic Resonance Images, Ray Diagrams and Tiny Bubbles
It has become common to make diagrams of the heads of toothed whales showing the paths of sound waves; this is more suitable in some cases than others. We will mention some limitations, give some observations made since the last of these meetings, and conclude with methods for further study.
