Universita degli Studi di Pavia's Interdisciplinary Center
for Bioacoustics and Environmental Research
EXCELLENT PAGE!!! Many sound files, good description of analysis
of Naval Research (ONR) right whale page
description of use of existing Navy technology to detect right
whales along the coast of the southeast U.S. Good whale
sound files and a right whale movie (CNN).
Sound Sources Sites
WhaleNet is an interactive educational project sponsored by
Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts. Good educational
site with links to other sites with cetacean sounds.
The Acoustic Thermometry of Ocean Climate (ATOC) project is
using low-frequency sound to study global warming. The
marine mammal component of the project is studying the effects
of this sound on marine species
Pacific Acoustic Laboratory
A joint project of Scripps Institute of Oceanography and the
Applied Laboratory at University of Washington to continue
work begun in Kauai via the ATOC project. Site is primarily
an EIS for the project.
A&M Bioacoustics Laboratory
Site describes research associated with such projects as GulCet
University Signal Processing Research Group
Basic information on hardware and links to other pages with
information on marine mammals
Cetacean Communication Project
Singapore group studying dolphin vocalizations (primarily
in captivity). Good diagrams of equipment.
McDonald's website on passive acoustic methods for the study
of large whales
Web: Sounds of the Wild
great list of other acoustic links
Society for Marine Mammalogy
the largest professional society of marine mammalogists; includes
Marine Mammal Stock Assessment Reports
includes distribution maps for U.S. Marine Mammal Stocks
and stock assessments from 1996-2000.
Office of Protected Species page
Excellent background information on all marine mammal species
protected by U.S. Federal laws; includes ESA and MMPA information
