The current terminology of underwater sound, as documented, for example, by (Urick, 1983), was developed during and after the Second World War (ASA, 1951; Urick, 1967), and has evolved little since then (Jensen et al., 2011). When examined against a modern requirement, with particular attention to the needs of planetary oceanography and underwater noise, this 60-year old terminology is found wanting......
