Multivariate analysis of behavioural response experiments in humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae)
The Journal of Experimental Biology
The behavioural response study (BRS) is an experimental design used by field biologists to determine the function and/or behavioural effects of conspecific, heterospecific or anthropogenic stimuli....
Response of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) to ramp-up of a small experimental air gun array.
Marine Pollution Bulletin
‘Ramp-up’, or ‘soft start’, is a mitigation measure used in seismic surveys and involves increasing the radiated sound level over 20–40 min. This study compared the...
Marine Mammal Science
As part of their social sound repertoire, migrating humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) perform a large variety of surface-active behaviors, such as breaching and repetitive slapping of...
The effect of close approached for tagging activities by small research vessels on the behavior of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae)
Marine Mammal Science
Small research vessels are often used as platforms for tagging activities to collect behavioral data on cetaceans and they have the potential to disturb that group...
Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics
A study of the response of humpback whales to seismic air guns is being conducted in Australian waters and two of four major experiments have been...
Proceedings of Acoustics
BRAHSS is a major project aimed at understanding how humpback whales respond to noise, particularly from seismic air gun arrays. It also aims to infer the...
Proceeding of Meeting on Acoustics
When measuring the response of large whales to a noise source, multiple measures of behavior are often used (e.g. horizontal movement, dive profile and surface behavior)....
Satellite telemetry reveals spatial overlap between vessel high-traffic areas and humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) near the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay.
US Navy Living Marine Resources (LMR) Monitoring Program Publications
During winter months, humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) frequent the coastal waters of Virginia near the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. Located within the Bay is Naval...
