Introduction

The aforementioned editorial by Carey [1] is timely and useful. Presently there is significant interest in the effects/non-effects of man made sound on the marine environment, and conventions for fair comparison between airborne and waterborne sound sources are important. The purpose of this communication, however, is to introduce a generalization to and to make additional comments on that editorial.
