New Developments for Passive Acoustic Monitoring of Sperm Whales in Hawaiian Waters

February 17, 2021

Dr. Yvonne Barkley, PhD candidate at the University of Hawaii at Manoa

Dr. Yvonne Barkley shares research findings related to tracking whales using passive acoustic monitoring. This talk will discuss a new approach for localizing passive acoustic data of sperm whales collected using towed hydrophone arrays and demonstrate how this information can be incorporated into species distribution models to improve our understanding of sperm whale habitat preferences in Hawaiian waters.
