Definitions for "Ringing"
The audible effect of a resonance: coloration, smear, shrillness, or boominess.
Short-term spikes in a signal. Usually related in digital circuitry to transients generated when a gate changes (switches) logic states.
The process of alerting the called party by the application of an intermittent ac signal (typically 20 Hz) to the appropriate line. When you apply the ringing signal to the called line you send an audible ringback tone to the calling telephone to show that ringing is occurring.
the sound of a bell ringing; "the distinctive ring of the church bell"; "the ringing of the telephone"; "the tintinnabulation that so volumnously swells from the ringing and the dinging of the bells"--E. A. Poe
Analagous to the ringing of a bell, it is the rise and decay time before and after the transducer reaches maximum amplitude. Expressed as the mechanical Q of the transducer which is the number of cycles it takes to get up to 90% of maximum amplitude, or down to 10% above zero amplitude.
After transmission the ADCP electronics, transducer and immediate surrounding equipment (particularly in vessel mounted ADCPs) all require some finite time to dampen the transmit energy, during which time any signal return from scatterers will be contaminated.
1. Term sometimes used to refer to a slight feedback condition. The point where feedback is just starting to occur, but isn't enough level to be sustained. "His lapel mic is starting to ring, turn down the level a little." The sound heard of excited upper frequencies (above 2kHz) before reaching the point that they are self-generating. see booming 2. Another term used for full-fledged feedback. "The system was ringing loudly before the speakers stopped working."
having a tendency to reverberate or be repeatedly reflected; "a reverberant room"; "the reverberant booms of cannon"
Keywords:  overshoot, see
See Overshoot.
The removal of a narrow strip of bark around the periphery of a stem to obstruct delivery of nutrients beyond that point. It is used to stimulate a fruit to bear.

The occurrence of circular spots in a sprayed repair area (spotting).
Keywords:  volts, subscriber, loop, sent, central
Alternating Current (AC) sent out from the central office along the local loop to the subscriber, typically 70 to 90 volts at 16 to 66 Hz (20 Hz is most widely used).
