    • Avoidance responses of minke whales to 1–4 kHz naval sonar 

      Kvadsheim, Petter H.; DeRuiter, Stacy; Sivle, Lise D.; Goldbogen, Jeremy; Roland-Hansen, Rune; Miller, Patrick J. O.; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Calambokidis, John; Friedlaender, Ari; Visser, Fleur; Tyack, Peter L.; Kleivane, Lars; Southall, Brandon (2017-08-15) - Journal article
      Minke whales are difficult to study and little information exists regarding their responses to anthropogenic sound. This study pools data from behavioural response studies off California and Norway. Data are derived from ...
    • Detecting, assessing, and mitigating the effects of naval sonar on cetaceans 

      Wensveen, Paul J. (University of St Andrews, 2016-04-14) - Thesis
      Effective management of the potential environmental impacts of naval sonar requires quantitative data on the behaviour and hearing physiology of cetaceans. Here, novel experimental and analytical methods were used to obtain ...
    • Effects of a scientific echo sounder on the behavior of short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) 

      Quick, Nicola; Scott-Hayward, Lindesay; Sadykova, Dinara; Nowacek, Doug; Read, Andrew (2017-05) - Journal article
      Active echo sounding devices are often employed for commercial or scientific purposes in the foraging habitats of marine mammals. We conducted an experiment off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, USA, to assess whether the ...
    • The effects of sound propagation and avoidance behaviour on naval sonar levels received by cetaceans 

      Wensveen, Paul J. (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
      The use of active sonar is deemed to be essential for naval operations, but its potential impact on marine life has raised concerns worldwide. In a risk-assessment framework, characterisation of risk of harm is accomplished ...
    • 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 ...
    • Lack of behavioural responses of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) indicate limited effectiveness of sonar mitigation 

      Wensveen, Paul J.; Kvadsheim, Petter H.; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; von Benda-Beckmann, Alexander M.; Sivle, Lise D.; Visser, Fleur; Curé, Charlotte; Tyack, Peter L.; Miller, Patrick J. O. (2017-11-15) - Journal article
      Exposure to underwater sound can cause permanent hearing loss and other physiological effects in marine animals. To reduce this risk, naval sonars are sometimes gradually increased in intensity at the start of transmission ...
    • Marine mammals and sonar : dose-response studies, the risk-disturbance hypothesis and the role of exposure context 

      Harris, Catriona M; Thomas, Len; Falcone, Erin; Hildebrand, John; Houser, Dorian; Kvadsheim, Petter; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Miller, Patrick; Moretti, David J.; Read, Andrew; Slabbekoorn, Hans; Southall, Brandon L.; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Wartzok, Douglas; Janik, Vincent M. (2018-01) - Journal item
      1. Marine mammals may be negatively affected by anthropogenic noise. Behavioural response studies (BRSs) aim to establish a relationship between the exposure dose of a stressor and associated behavioural responses of ...
    • Population-level consequences of seismic surveys on fishes : an interdisciplinary challenge 

      Slabbekoorn, Hans; Dalen, John; de Haan, Dick; Winter, Hendrik V.; Radford, Craig; Ainslie, Michael A.; Heaney, Kevin D.; van Kooten, Tobias; Thomas, Len; Harwood, John (2019-05-03) - Journal article
      Offshore activities elevate ambient sound levels at sea, which may affect marine fauna. We reviewed the literature about impact of airgun acoustic exposure on fish in terms of damage, disturbance and detection and explored ...
    • Predicting the effects of human developments on individual dolphins to understand potential long-term population consequences 

      Pirotta, Enrico; Harwood, John; Thompson, Paul; New, Leslie; Cheney, Barbara; Arso Civil, Monica; Hammond, Philip Steven; Donovan, Carl Robert; Lusseau, David (2015-11) - Journal article
      Human activities that impact wildlife do not necessarily remove individuals from populations. They may also change individual behaviour in ways that have sublethal effects. This has driven interest in developing analytical ...
