Colossus revisited: A review and extension of the Marsh-Schulkin shallow water transmission loss model
University of Washington Applied Physics Laboratory
This report reviews the Marsh-Schulkin (M-S), or Colossus, model of acoustic transmission loss in shallow water in light of new information and techniques that have emerged...
Final report of the Independent Scientific Review Panel investigating potential contributing factors to a 2008 mass stranding of melon-headed whales (Peponocephala electra) in Antsohihy, Madagascar.
A highly unusual event involving the long-term displacement and mass stranding of approximately 100 melon-headed whales (Peponocephala electra) occurred in May-June 2008 in the Loza Lagoon...
Proximate Measurements of Acoustic Emissions Associated with the Installation and Operation of an Exploration Jackup Drilling Rig in the North Sea.
The Effects of Noise on Aquatic Life: Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology
Underwater sound recordings were obtained from the Noble Kolskaya jackup gas-exploration drilling rig in the North Sea on the Dogger Bank. The aim was to document...
Short-term disturbance by a commercial two-dimensional seismic survey does not lead to long-term displacement of harbour porpoises
Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
Assessments of the impact of offshore energy developments are constrained because it is not known whether fine-scale behavioural responses to noise lead to broader-scale displacement of...
Seabird diving behaviour reveals the functional significance of shelf-sea fronts as foraging hotspots.
Royal Society open SACence
Oceanic fronts are key habitats for a diverse range of marine predators, yet how they influence fine-scale foraging behaviour is poorly understood. Here, we investigated the...
Cetaceans rely critically on sound for navigation, foraging and communication and are therefore potentially affected by increasing noise levels from human activities at sea. Shipping is...
Long-term satellite tracking reveals variable seasonal migration strategies of basking sharks in the north-east Atlantic.
Animal migration is ubiquitous in nature with individuals within a population often exhibiting varying movement strategies. The basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus) is the world’s second largest...
Temporary threshold shifts and recovery in a harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) after octave-band noise at 4 kHz.
Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
Safety criteria for underwater sound produced during offshore pile driving are needed to protect marine mammals. A harbor porpoise was exposed to fatiguing noise at 18...
Journal of the European Acoustical Association
Due to the massive, worldwide increase in the number of constructed offshore wind farms, the ecological impact of construction sites has become an important issue. Hereby,...
Research into dolphin swimming has historically been guided by false assumptions of ‘effortless’, ‘high-speed’ swimming. These assumptions have instigated the development of drag-reduction hypotheses but tests...
