Looking Out for Whales

WHOI engineering assistants Jim Dunn (center) and Jim Ryder (right) and a member of the crew of the research vessel Connecticut deploy a right whale autodetection buoy in Massachusetts Bay in June 2008. Designed and built at WHOI, the moored buoy is instrumented with an underwater microphone—or hydrophone—that listens for the calls of right whales along the main shipping lanes into Massachusetts Bay and Boston Harbor.
