Measuring inter-pulse intervals in sperm whale clicks: consistency of automatic estimation methods.

Abstract

Sperm whale clicks are characterized by a multi-pulsed structure. The time lag between consecutive pulses, i.e., the inter-pulse interval (IPI), is related to the size of the sound production organ such that its measurement provides a means to acoustically estimate the size of individual whales. Due to off-axis effects the identification of pulses is… (More)
