JP students set to deploy a profiling float that will listen for whales

Eavesdropping on Whales

Nick Woods and Sophia Merrifield, students in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography, prepare to deploy a profiling float equipped with acoustic sensors that “listen” for whales and a suite of instruments that measure physical characteristics of the marine environment. The area they were working in, about 20 miles off Race Point at the tip of Cape Cod, is a rich feeding ground for whales, including endangered North Atlantic right whales.
