Abstract:

Our long-range objective is to understand the oceanographic processes that influence the distribution of whales in the ocean. In support of this objective we seek to develop new techniques and technologies that enable us to relate the occurrence and movement of animals to physical, biological, and possibly anthropogenic forcing mechanisms over long time scales. This work will ultimately improve our ability to predict whale distribution and bolster efforts to mitigate human impacts on marine mammals.
