Vocal Behavior of False Killer Whale (Pseudorca crassidens) Acoustic Subgroups
Better understanding of the vocal behavior of cetaceans in the name of developing automated passive acoustic cetacean tracking, localization, and classification techniques.
Understanding the vocal behavior of cetaceans is an important component of many passive acoustic applications. This study quantifies the vocal behavior of acoustic subgroups of false killer whales (Pseudorca crassidens) from the Hawaiian Archipelago. These results contribute important information for developing automated passive acoustic cetacean tracking, localization, and classification techniques, and thus, support future cetacean monitoring and assessment efforts.
