Abstract : The long term goal of this study is to develop methods to estimate marine mammal tissue compartment sizes, and tissue gas solubility. We aim to improve the data available for the relative size of different tissues in various marine mammal species, as well as our understanding of their different morphological and physiological adaptations. The study will also develop a method that enables the determination of the gas solubility in different tissue compartments.
