    New Publication on Detection of Complex Sounds in Seals and Sea Lions

    Tuesday, December 30, 2014

    On behalf of lead author Kane Cunningham, we would like to provide some information on our recent paper on the detection of complex sounds by seals and sea lions.  The goal of this study was to test how auditory data predict detection of complex sounds in quiet and noisy conditions.  Our results indicate that pinnipeds […]

    New SOCAL-BRS Publication on Baird’s Beaked Whale Behavior

    Tuesday, December 30, 2014

      We are pleased to announce a recent publication from the SOCAL-BRS project on the basic behavior and responses to simulated military sonar in a Barid’s beaked whale. These data were particularly significant in being the first high-resolution movement and acoustic measurements for any individual of this species. The photo above (Taken under NMFS permit […]

    END SOCAL-14 PHASE II

    Friday, September 19, 2014

    After a few rough weather days – hot and windy with high seas – we got a break on our last day for this phase of SOCAL-14. It was nice and calm as we worked back towards our end point near LA and we found a number of different animals feeding on some rich aggregations […]
