The US Navy has admitted that its use of a high-intensity sonar system caused a rash of whale strandings and deaths in March 2000. Sixteen beaked and minke whales were found stranded on beaches in the Bahamas shortly after US Navy ships using the highintensity sonar had passed by. Six are known to have died, and the rest were pushed back into the sea. But a fall in sightings of beaked whales has led researchers working in the area to believe that many more may have died. Autopsies on the… 

Warfare Ecology

ABSTRACT Among human activities causing ecological change, war is both intensive and far-reaching. Yet environmental research related to warfare is limited in depth and fragmented by discipline. Here

USE OF ACTIVE SONAR FOR CETACEAN CONSERVATION AND BEHAVIORAL-ECOLOGY STUDIES: A PARADOX?

The relationship between low frequency military sonar use and some whale stranding events has attracted negative attention towards the use of active sonar in the marine environment. As a consequence,

Sonar inter-ping noise field characterization during cetacean behavioral response studies off Southern California

The potential negative effects of sound, particularly active sonar, on marine mammals has received considerable attention in the past decade. Numerous behavioral response studies are ongoing around

Soft polymer membrane micro-sensor arrays inspired by the mechanosensory lateral line on the blind cavefish

This article reports the development of flexible arrays of soft membrane microelectromechanical system pressure sensors that are inspired by the functional implications of the lateral line organ

Crocodile inspired Dome Pressure sensor for hydrodynamic sensing

In this study, a dome structure embedded with piezoelectric pressure sensors is constructed, which carries out the mechano-receptive function of DPRs for direction detection, and demonstrates that the proposed dome structure could determine the direction of the origin of a disturbance.

Development of MEMS-based Pressure Sensor for Underwater Applications

Introduction: Blind cave fish are capable of sensing flows and movements of nearby objects even in dark and murky water conditions with the help of array of neuromasts present on their bodies called
