    • 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 ...
    • Biological significance of sperm whale responses to sonar: comparison with anti-predator responses 

      Curé, Charlotte; Isojunno, Saana; Visser, Fleur; Wensveen, Paul J.; Sivle, Lise D.; Kvadsheim, Petter H.; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Miller, Patrick (2016-10-06) - Journal article
      A key issue when investigating effects of anthropogenic noise on cetacean behavior is to identify the biological significance of the responses. Predator presence can be considered a natural high-level disturbance stimulus ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Individual, ecological, and anthropogenic influences on activity budgets of long-finned pilot whales 

      Isojunno, S.; Sadykova, D.; DeRuiter, S.; Curé, C.; Visser, F.; Thomas, L.; Miller, P. J. O.; Harris, C. M. (2017-12) - Journal article
      Time allocation to different activities and habitats enables individuals to modulate their perceived risks and access to resources, and can reveal important trade-offs between fitness-enhancing activities (e.g., feeding ...
    • Influence of natural factors and anthropogenic stressors on sperm whale foraging effort and success at high latitudes 

      Isojunno, Saana (University of St Andrews, 2015-06) - Thesis
      Behavioural responses can reveal important fitness trade-offs and ecological traps in evolutionarily novel contexts created by anthropogenic stimuli, and are of increasing conservation concern due to possible links to ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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, ...
    • A risk function for behavioral disruption of Blainville’s beaked whales (Mesoplodon densirostris) from mid-frequency active sonar 

      Moretti, David; Thomas, Len; Marques, Tiago A.; Harwood, John; Dilley, Ashley; Neales, Bert; Shaffer, Jessica; Mccarthy, E; New, Leslie Frances; Jarvis, S; Morrissey, Ron (2014-01) - Journal article
      There is increasing concern about the potential effects of noise pollution on marine life in the world’s oceans. For marine mammals, anthropogenic sounds may cause behavioral disruption, and this can be quantified using a ...
    • Sperm whales reduce foraging effort during exposure to 1-2 kH z sonar and killer whale sounds 

      Isojunno, Saana; Curé, Charlotte; Kvadsheim, Petter Helgevold; Lam, Frans-Peter Alexander; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Wensveen, Paul Jacobus; Miller, Patrick James O'Malley (2016-02-08) - Journal article
      The time and energetic costs of behavioral responses to incidental and experimental sonar exposures, as well as control stimuli, were quantified using hidden state analysis of time series of acoustic and movement data ...
