Hearing under the sea

Hearing under the sea

WHOI postdoctoral scientist Aran Mooney, shown here in the WHOI Computerized Scanning and Imaging facility, studies marine animal hearing. He and colleagues recently investigated the effects of sonar sound on a captive dolphin, finding that  "prolonged, high sound exposure levels" produced a temporary effect on hearing and behavior. The results, published online on April 8, 2009 in Biology Letters, generated headlines in the popular media. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
