This paper is primarily concerned with the acoustics of traveling bubble cavitation around foils or headforms. We begin with observations of individual bubbles and the acoustic signals they emit, our purpose being to identify areas of research which would enhance our understanding of the history of individual bubbles. Then we present some numerical integrations of the Rayleigh/Plesset equation for the same flows. The comparison is encouraging in terms of future synthesis of the noise by analytical means. Finally, bubble interaction effects which were omitted earlier are discussed and some recent analytical results including these effects are presented.
