The behavior of humpback whales, Megaptera novaeangliae, exposed to playback of low-frequency sounds, was examined to test whether animals would respond to this signal when received sound levels exceeded 120 dB re: 1 µPa. The source signal was an M-sequence (essentially a sine wave with a series of phase reversals) centered at 75 Hz with a 30-Hz bandwidth. Behavior and movements of whales were described before, during, and after playback. Eighty-five trials were conducted, of which 50 had an… CONTINUE READING
