    • Dose-response relationships for the onset of avoidance of sonar by free-ranging killer whales 

      Miller, Patrick; Antunes, Ricardo Nuno; Wensveen, Paulus Jacobus; Samarra, Filipa Isabel Pereira; Alves, Ana Catarina De Carvalho; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Kvadsheim, Petter H.; Kleivane, Lars; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Ainslie, Michael A.; Thomas, Len (2014-02) - Journal article
      Eight experimentally controlled exposures to 1−2 kHz or 6−7 kHz sonar signals were conducted with four killer whale groups. The source level and proximity of the source were increased during each exposure in order to reveal ...
    • First indications that northern bottlenose whales are sensitive to behavioural disturbance from anthropogenic noise 

      Miller, Patrick; Kvadsheim, P H; Lam, F P A; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Curé, C; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Kleivane, L; Sivle, L D; van IJsselmuide, S P; Visser, F; Wensveen, Paulus Jacobus; von Benda-Beckmann, A M; Martin Lopez, Lucia Martina; Narazaki, Tomoko; Hooker, Sascha Kate (2015-06-03) - Journal article
      Although northern bottlenose whales were the most heavily hunted beaked whale, we have little information about this species in its remote habitat of the North Atlantic Ocean. Underwater anthropogenic noise and disruption ...
    • How effectively do horizontal and vertical response strategies of long-finned pilot whales reduce sound exposure from naval sonar? 

      Wensveen, Paulus Jacobus; von Benda-Beckmann, Alexander M; Ainslie, Michael A; Lam, Frans-Peter A; Kvadsheim, Petter H; Tyack, Peter L; Miller, Patrick J O (2015-05) - Journal article
      The behaviour of a marine mammal near a noise source can modulate the sound exposure it receives. We demonstrate that two long-finned pilot whales both surfaced in synchrony with consecutive arrivals of multiple sonar ...
    • Naval sonar disrupts foraging behaviour in humpback whales 

      Sivle, Lise D.; Wensveen, Paulus Jacobus; Kvadsheim, Petter; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Visser, Fleur; Cure, Charlotte; Harris, Catriona M; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Miller, Patrick (2016-12-29) - Journal article
      Modern long-range naval sonars are a potential disturbance for marine mammals and can cause disruption of feeding in cetaceans. We examined the lunge-feeding behaviour of humpback whales Megaptera novaeangliae before, ...
