deploying acoustic recorders

Sun, Sea, and Sound

Working from a small boat off Cape Cod in mid-July, guest student Aimee Boucher (Duke University) and MIT-WHOI Joint Program student Nicholas Macfarlane deploy an acoustic recording device at the site where Cape Wind plans to install energy-generating wind turbines. The recordings are part of a multi-year project led by WHOI biologists Aran Mooney and Laela Sayigh to detect and analyze the region's ambient noises—the underwater "soundscape"—before, during, and after construction of the turbines.
