Dolphins are one of my favourite animals. They let our sonar waves to detect things around them so that they can find their way in the depths of the ocean. This technique is called echolocation. Bats also use this to help them see in the dark.

Sonar. Lunar. Brunar. Hunar. Harold and Kumar. Sonar reminds me of light. I wish I could write about it with knowledge, but unfortunately, I cannot. Oh well. My brain has been worked up recently. It’s a good thing, though. My brain needs to stay at work, or else I’ll be a rotten vegetable. Good bye.

the sonar is something to do with space and the universe and it is mainly to do with the sun aas it emits sonar radiation as it burns and shines into our atmosphere and the light that it provides helps us to grow plants and trees that provide us with the oxygen we need to breathe and we provide them with the carbon dioxide they need to produce glucose in a rewaction we call photosynthesis.

Submarines. That’s all I can think of, submarines. Sonar works underwater, but radar doesn’t. So submarines. We all live in a yellow one. I’m not really fond of yellow. I like green. I love the ocean, but I don’t think I’d want to be in a submarine anyways. I’m a bit claustrophobic.

What was written was brilliant. No question she knew exactly what was needed. They pinged like an almost primal sonar. Pinged, though, might be the wrong word.

The flow of light and sound through space detected by intelligent life forms known as human beings. The beeping sound that puts you to sleep at night. The sound of the aquarium. The sound of creation.

Sonar technology is used for deep sea research as well as space research. This technique is not only used by humans, but with animals such as dolphins, bats, etc. This process was derived from echolocation, a technique used by bats, as well as sonar. Sonar tech travels in waves, because it is consisting of more energy that the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we see, because it is categorized in the ultraviolet section, given that violet is the last color, and the one with the most energy.

Sonar, like the whales, right?
Sonar, like, the sensing thing?
Or is that submarines?
Sometimes, I felt like I had sonar, always detecting you, even from far away.
Well, as far as the walls were, where you always were, lingering on the walls, not approaching me, making me wait. You didn’t even know you were doing it, but you were, always making me wait.

Sonar sounds sciency. I’m not actually sure what it is used for though, sounds technical. Like a communication device.
By Emily URL on 07.17.2012
i dont know what that is..
i have more time on me..
you know, i am swedish and 13 years old so my english is’nt the best :)
By gabbi URL on 07.17.2012
I dunno what a sonar is. Maybe I should know. It’s quite science-y, yes? Sorta to do with wavelengths? Or maybe it’s astrology and stars and stuff? I really don’t know, to be honest. For a a bit of a sci-fi fan, this is a pretty disappointing realisation. Someone, please enlighten me; what’s a sonar?
By Ciara on 07.17.2012
who invented the word sonar? Did somebody just heard the own voice after and after and after again and decided to call it sonar? Sonar makes lots of things very unexpcted and is confusing the inner human not knowing what and when was happening and happend.
By Sylvi on 07.17.2012
He lit the end of the cigar and puffed lightly- a sweet musty kiss to the sky as he exhaled the expensive breath. The dots on the sonar appeared to be getting closer- and with each perceived mile, the captain sucked back harder and harder trying to blanket his fears in the thick smoke.

If I call out for you when I’m blind, will I hear your form come back to me? You never would let me touch you; can I call out to you instead? Is it alright, if I touch you with these words?

waves transferring through the air
sit in silence
hear my thoughts?
a penny for them
for my thoughts
you can drown them out, you know
choose not to listen
which most do
which is what you do
there’s music everywhere
floating in the air
the sound waves
and thought waves
like sonar waves down under
floating above our heads
please, i’m begging you
just sit with me
i promise you’ll hear them
i cannot say out loud
for my thoughts are sacred secrets.

Hohaha. Sonar like bats who can navigate their way around the world just using sonar signals. Sound bouncing off the surfaces of the world providing us with information about distance and perspective and all those static objects around us just waiting to be walked or flown or swam into. There are huge concrete shapes like satellite dishes all around the Kent coastal landscape which were consttuced but never used during the second world war. They were built to work on the principal of sonar communication, so that codes could be communicated across the channel using sounds.

bats soar through the night, searching for tiny food fluttering and buzzing through the night sky. eats and munches the tiny annoying blood suckers, keeps them away from us. voices reflect off the bugs and into their ear, so subtle for us to hear. wonderfully unique, creatures of the night.

sonar is a spanish word that means that something maked a sound. in that case it is a verb. and without it one of our senses would be useless.
By rodrigo on 07.17.2012
sonar? radar? (<it's spelled the same way forward and backwards). sonar and all the it entails is beyond my understanding. beep beep beep. beep. beep. hubble spaceship shit. orbiting. signaling. sonaring.

Here he comes.
She sipped her Manhattan at the bar and watched him scope out the joint. Nervous. Twitchy almost. The cheesy light-blue jacket and combed-over hair. Yeah, he’s the one. She watched as he jostled onto the stool and opened his wallet.
Ready. She slipped from her spot and sidled over to the space beside him. Smiling, she clinked her glass to his.

used in subs, not suubmarine sandwhiches, but the kind that go in water and hunt down like giant squids and stuff. also they were used in world war 2, and one was invented by george wahsington, because he is a BAMF
So, yeah. SOnar is cool, BLOOP. BLOOP. BLOOP

The sonar searched along the moon’s surface. It beeped and beeped until suddenly it didn’t make a sound. And the universe was quiet. Just for a second. But it was the most peaceful second ever.

bats use sonar to detect and find there pray,
The sonar around us is crazy. Unbelievable really. It was confusing and beautiful. This was something beyond earth and comprehension.
By Alexa on 07.17.2012
is it the dolphins, is it the bats or is it the missile coming my way… on the litte green ånd black screen?
By Tatiana Diaz URL on 07.17.2012
I have no idea what sonar is so i can’t really write very much about it, but, erm, it sounds like the word solar so it may have something to do with light, or space? I don’t really know, but yeah, erm, cool, so, erm.. this is awkward. >.> la la la la… le fin.

1. Think of an abstract fruit
2. Place a tissue cone to your right, no, left ear
3. Tap the edge of a glass with an eyelash
4. With your tongue, listen out for the compound sentence
(if a complex sentence is felt, you tapped too softly,
If a simple return to step 6)
5. Ask the bat to help by giving you a slice of sonar

Beep………Beep………Beep………. Beep Beep Beep.
Captain! An enemy sub is fast approaching! What are your orders?
Prepare the torpedoes for launch and ready the counter measures. I refuse to let my men die down here.

Makes me think of the name of a star or tip of car car example: ford sonar or something like that…. It’s a very awkward word that I know nothing about and is weird sounding and looking.

ping pnging around the underworld saying hi to the deep blue, a reminder of awakening understanding the sound with a wuick flick of a distant sound, your position found and given to the public to find you, a facebook for the water.

Sonar is a magical device that lets animals like dolphins and bats see and catch things to eat. Dementors have it, too, so they can suck out souls. I’m sure gingers want it bc they don’t have souls and probs want to suck out other people’s.

The whale’s sonar hit off the aluminum bottom of the boat as it crossed the deep inlet. The small motored vehicle chugged along unaware that beneath it was the largest animal it was ever going to come in contact with. The whale thought briefly about destroying the nusance who so often had interupted it’s peacful existence but had wisely decided against it. Other’s have tried and only had succeded in bringing the wrath of the small but very dangerous beings.
By Adam URL on 07.17.2012
I don’t even know what this means!! It reminds be of spaceships, astronauts, and bats. Like echo location! Blind people have used that to help with their mobility.
By Teagan on 07.17.2012
Sonar is a method for detecting and locating objects that are submerged deep under the water. Sonar can be used for many of things. Sonar can used for education or finding more where the human eyes cannot see. I have overheard some people talking about how they have used sonar to find things deep down under and to discover what is there. Sonar has a GPS built in I think so it can find a way underwater. Sonar can be used after a ship wreck or plane crash to find the bodies of the dead or material of the plane or boat.

Sound deep and bellowing
A cry for one thing
All that’s left
A cry for all that’s left
Something that’ll never be
A prolonged flash of truth
Ease and comfort
All is stripped away
Lost in dark blue
The figure white ghostly strung out of blanched seaweed cries for its return
It’s taken away in swaddling clothes
Carried over the shoulder of a man prim and proper
A real gentleman
Walks quickly, stiffly, knows what he wants
“I’m not a kid,” he says. “Life is simple.”
He is sure. He is sure of it.
“This baby does not belong here.
This baby has no place here.
This baby needs a real home and mother.
I know what this baby needs.
I know because
I know my needs.”
There’s only hardness in his back.
All the possibilities of maybes go unrecognized. He cannot notice them.
He can’t be expected to.
He has decided he knows what he wants
She is only folly
She needs to grow up
This will teach her
“I will teach her this lesson. She cannot parade around the way she wishes. It is unattractive and unsuitable for a woman, let alone a mother, of her age. She needs to grow up.”
Her cry ripples through a blanket of purple navy blue
At the start dense and powerful fades to a thinned semi-circle push
Trying to catch up
Losing its legs as it goes
Fallen down exhausted on the track
The sun sets off before them
A walking shadow disappears
Both heads mirage into the flame.
The woman weeps
Her head torn up scratched she’s sinking
Mud up to her knees.
My baby she cries no.
SOund and NAvigation Ranging. It’s funny how people come up with acronyms, isn’t it? Although sonar has to do with sound, it always reminds me of the sun, somehow. I hope people have found good things with SONAR … wait. It DOES stand for SOund and NAvigation Ranging.

“What are you doing?”
“I’m developing a sonar system for my aquarium!” squeaked Bailey.
Bailey’s aquarium was his tiny fish tank in the corner of his bedroom, with two goldfish swimming about a plastic castle and ignoring the pellets waiting to be devoured. I watched him tinker with the random scraps of metal and shrapnel and tried asking another question.
“How is this going to work?”
“I’m going to detect sound,” said Bailey. “Duh.”
