  • About the Edition

    The Marine Animal SOUND Database system encompasses (1) descriptive text databases cataoging the WHOI collection of underwater sound recordings from marine animal, (2) sets of files of digital sound sequences, (3) text database organizing the digital sound sequences, and (4) software for analysis, display, playback, and export of selected sound files. The text databases index and sort the information on the sounds. The digital sound files are accessed directly from the text record, analyzed on screen, listened to, and compared or exported as desired. These databases provide comprehensive means for quantitative analyses and statistical comparisons of marine animal vocalizations. The objective has been to develop basic tools for the study of marine animal sounds. The text database for cataloging the collection of recordings provides convenient sorting and selection of sounds of interest. Then, as specific sequences are digitized from these recordings, they become part of a second database system that manages these sound data. Once a digital sound is part of the database, several tools are available for interactive spectrogram display, sound playback, statistical feature extraction, and export to other application programs.

    Sound has become a major tool for studying the ocean. Although the ocean is relatively opaque to light, it is relatively transparent to sound. Sound having frequencies below 1, Hertz (Hz) is often defined as low-frequency sound. The speed of sound is proportional to the temperature of the water through which it passes. Therefore, sound speed can be used to infer the average temperature of.

The Marine Mammal Center conducts basic research, using cutting-edge technology to solve major scientific and conservation challenges. Its scientists and engineers integrate diverse approaches and methods to understanding marine mammals and the different ways humans may influence their health, populations, and ecosystems.

Many marine animals rely on sound for survival and depend on unique adaptations that enable them to communicate, protect themselves, locate food, navigate underwater, and/or understand their environment. They may both produce sounds and listen to the sounds around them. Sounds are particularly useful for communication because they can be used to convey a great deal of.

To move beyond requiring extensive study of each sound source and each area in which it may be operated, [NRC () recommended that] a coordinated plan should be developed to explore how sound characteristics affect the responses of a representative set of marine mammal species in several biological contexts (e.g., feeding, migrating, and breeding).

The sound can vary a bit from book to book in the series & sometimes can be loud. This can be good/bad depending on your child.
