In this paper, we discuss the issues encountered when trying to perform hearing experiments in water-filled tanks that are several meters in lateral extent, typically large in terms of the size of the animals under study but not necessarily so with respect to the wavelengths of interest. This paper presents measurements of pressure and particle motion fields in these “large” tanks. The observed characteristics and complexities are discussed in reference to their potential impact on the planning and interpretation of hearing experiments.
