Real-time tracking of blue whales using DIFAR sonobuoys

  title={Real-time tracking of blue whales using DIFAR sonobuoys},
  author={Brian S. Miller},
Passive acoustic tracking of blue whales has been proposed as a key component in a strategy to obtain a circumpolar abundance for Antarctic blue whale as proposed in a project of the IWC Southern Ocean Research Partnership. While a theoretical basis for passive tracking of blue whales has been demonstrated, there are substantial differences between these theoretical scenarios and a fully-operational, dedicated, real-time, tracking program. Because passive acoustic tracking relies upon the use… CONTINUE READING
