Title: SRKW acoustic response - Investigating noise effects on the acoustic signals and behavior of Southern Resident killer whales (Orcinus orca)
Short Name: SRKW acoustic response (Investigating noise effects on the acoustic signals and behavior of Southern Resident killer whales (Orcinus orca))
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2012-01-01
Publication Date: 2016-07-22
Abstract:

In this study, vocal compensation is being investigated in Southern Resident killer whale (SRKW) calls to determine the degree to which whales can adjust to increased background noise levels. In addition, whale and vessel behavior data are also collected to determine what contribution vessel traffic has on noise levels and how noise levels influence whale behavior. The work was part of an NRC-postdoctoral project led by Marla Holt, and includes Dawn Noren (Adams) and Candice Emmons as internal collaborators. The specific work includes experimental design, data collection, data analysis, and writing for submission to peer-reviewed journals. This is a one-time project, and addresses key risk factors (vessel and noise interactions) of SRKW.

Measurements of vocal behavior, whale behavioral states, background noise measurements, vessel counts and other attributes.

Purpose:

Addresses Legal Mandate

How Will the Data Be Protected from Accidental or Malicious Modification or Deletion Prior to Receipt by the Archive?:

The Northwest Fisheries Science Center facilitates backup and recovery of all data and IT components which are managed by IT Operations through the capture of static (point-in-time) backup data to physical media. Once data is captured to physical media (every 1-3 days), a duplicate is made and routinely (weekly) transported to an offsite archive facility where it is maintained throughout the data's applicable life-cycle.
