oscillation/vibration de câble sous-marin
Explanation:
"Towed array strain-sensing noise canceller

Cable strumming has long been recognized as a noise problem for towed hydrophones. It is a source of noise developed by transverse vibration of a cable upon being drawn through water, and it is a source of serious noise interference with acoustic input into a hydrophone."
