Abstract. Two-channel recording of acoustic signals from two quasi-stationary
dolphins has previously suggested that the dolphin echolocation system is more
complex than discussed earlier, and includes at least four sonars. In the present
work, two-channel recording of signals, analysis and interpretation of their
functions were continued in terms of physical acoustics, signal theory and
echolocation. The results indicate that the echolocation system of dolphins
involves four organs to produce probing signals of five different types, which
implies different mechanisms of their processing by the dolphin hearing;
its operation corresponds to as many as six varieties of sonar systems.
The results are of importance for studying the echolocation system of Odontoceti
and for improving sonars and radars.
