Scientists look to safeguard the mammals with robotic buoys in the New York Bight
For Mark Baumgartner, Whale Safe is the natural evolution of WHOI’s work with passive acoustics
Ocean scientists don’t just read peer-reviewed papers to stay inspired. Some require less-obvious forms of reading to keep their minds sharp
Can wind developers and ocean scientists work together to get US offshore wind cranking?
WHOI scientist Mark Baumgartner has installed a mooring in New York waters that listens for whales and sends back alerts. The prototype advance-warning system could one day help reduce shipping collisions with whales.
Robotic gliders equipped with acoustic monitoring devices can now eavesdrop on whales, enabling researchers to locate the elusive animals before they surfaceÃ¢ÂÂand to warn ship pilots in the area to slow down to reduce the chances of a deadly collision.
