Successful suction-cup tagging of a small delphinid species, Stenella attenuata : insights into whistle characteristics
(2017-04-13) - Journal article,
Harbour seals (Phoca vitulina) around an operational tidal turbine in Strangford Narrows : no barrier effect but small changes in transit behaviour
(2018-02) - Journal article,
1. Data were obtained from 32 electronic tags that were glued to the fur of harbour seals (Phoca vitulina) in and around Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland, during the environmental monitoring of the SeaGen tidal turbine. ...
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill marine mammal injury assessment
(2017-01-31) - Journal item,
From 2010 to 2015, a team of scientists studied how the BP Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill affected marine mammals inhabiting the northern Gulf of Mexico, as part of the DWH Natural Resource Damage Assessment process. ...
Short first click intervals in echolocation trains of three species of deep diving odontocetes
(2017-02) - Journal article,
All odontocetes produce echolocation clicks as part of their vocal repertoire. In this paper we analysed inter-click-intervals in recordings from suction cup tags with a focus on the first inter-click interval of each click ...
True’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon mirus) in Macaronesia
(2017-03-07) - Journal article,
The True’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon mirus, True 1913) is a poorly known member of the Ziphiidae family. Its distribution in the northern hemisphere is thought to be restricted to the temperate or warm temperate waters of ...
Terrestrial degradation impacts on coral reef health : evidence from the Caribbean
(2017-11-15) - Journal article,
Coral reefs are in decline worldwide. While coral reef managers are limited in their ability to tackle global challenges, such as ocean warming, managing local threats can increase the resilience of coral reefs to these ...
Developing methodologies for large scale wave and tidal stream marine renewable energy extraction and its environmental impact : an overview of the TeraWatt project
(2017-10-01) - Journal article,
Licensing arrangements for marine renewable energy (MRE) developments must consider potential environmental effects. These include the single, combined and cumulative effects of multi-site MRE developments over a wider ...
Categorizing click trains to increase taxonomic precision in echolocation click loggers
(2017-08) - Journal article,
Passive acoustic monitoring is an efficient way to study acoustically active animals but species identification remains a major challenge. C-PODs are popular logging devices that automatically detect odontocete echolocation ...
Modelling harbour seal movements
(Scottish Government, 2017-10-11) - Report,
Marine seismic surveys and ocean noise : time for coordinated and prudent planning
(2015-09) - Journal item,
Marine seismic surveys use intense (eg >= 230 decibel [dB] root mean square [RMS]) sound impulses to explore the ocean bottom for hydrocarbon deposits, conduct geophysical research, and establish resource claims under the ...
