The key to our minds ability to create is to bring forth images that help us to see the world in a different way, a new way. With this line of vision, we are opened to numerous possibilities. All hopes that have once seemed so far a way suddenly become attainable. For moments that are surrounded by despair, with no sign of light to guide us, are soon turned into a time of triumph and rejoicing. There is a spirit of our mind's eye, when at its most active, gives more power to extend itself further. That is inspiration. Drawn from the simplest of matters or objects that we may or may not have taken notice. In these stories, inspiration is given to a number of working people, who try to fill in the missing links in their vocations of choice. For in their midst they come face to face with an ultimate gift from a common object, a statue, a cloth sculpture, a beaded art form. Whichever name they are given, the message to these people is to respond to this gift; Find within their hearts the courage to go beyond where the eyes can see.

The ocean is opaque to electromagnetic radiation and transparent to low frequency sound, so acoustical methodologies are an important tool for sensing the undersea world. Stochastic sound-speed fluctuations in the ocean, such as those caused by internal waves, result in a progressive randomisation of acoustic signals as they traverse the ocean environment. This signal randomisation imposes a limit to the effectiveness of ocean acoustic remote sensing, navigation and communication. Sound Propagation through the Stochastic Ocean provides a comprehensive treatment of developments in the field of statistical ocean acoustics over the last 35 years. This will be of fundamental interest to oceanographers, marine biologists, geophysicists, engineers, applied mathematicians, and physicists. Key discoveries in topics such as internal waves, ray chaos, Feynman path integrals, and mode transport theory are addressed with illustrations from ocean observations. The topics are presented at an approachable level for advanced students and seasoned researchers alike.
