Acoustic Measurements: Winter 2011

The acoustics team of the LSIESP is comprised of scientists from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography of the University of California, San Diego (SIO/UCSD), in collaboration with researchers from the Universidad Autonoma de Baja California Sur (UABCS) and the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM). Over the past four years the team has collected long-term underwater acoustic data from bottom-mounted recorders and suction-cup tags attached to whales, as well as auxiliary information such as wind speed and water temperature.

The acoustics team performed two trips to San Ignacio Lagoon during the winter season of 2011: one initial visit to deploy bottom-mounted, long-term monitoring (LTM) instruments and a second, more extended, expedition to tag individual whales.
