Has sight confirmed the sound;
A wavering birch line marks alone
The vacant pasture ground.

Th' obscure abyss of Providence,
Too deep to sound with mortal lines,
Too dark to view with feeble sense.

Of its dropped pebbles in the well,
All vainly down the dark profound
His brief-lined plummet fell.

Fall on a star in thy garland of light,
Sound but one bugle-blast! Lo! at the sign
Armies all panoplied wheel into line!

That guard my cottage round;
The sea-waves fall in stormy lines
Below the sandy cliffs and chines,
And swell the roaring sound.

I plod and peer amid mean sounds and shapes,
I hunt for dusty gain and dreary praise,
And slowly pass the dismal grinning days,
Monkeying each other like a line of apes.

The bottom-line: It should be clear that the Random Oracle Methodology is not sound; that is, the mere fact that a scheme is secure in the Random Oracle Model cannot be taken as evidence (or indication) to the security of (possible) implementations of this scheme.

They calculate the energy of the sound wave by estimating the reduction of the vortex line length.
Reconnection and acoustic emission of quantized vortices in superfluid by the numerical analysis of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation
As described before, the amplitude of the sound wave depends on how much the quantum energy is transferred into the kinetic energy, in other words, the vortex line length is lost by the reconnection.
