27 Mar Behavioral Responses of Satellite Tracked Blainville’s Beaked Whales to Mid-frequency Active Sonar
We’ve been seeing a lot of effort put forward in understanding how whales react to sonar. There are a lot of theories.

One of the largest samples of beaked whales were tracked using Wildlife Computers SPOT-240 and SPLASH10 tags.
