Shark attack : a program of data reduction and analysis.

  title={Shark attack : a program of data reduction and analysis.},
  author={Henry D. Baldridge},
Data from 1165 case histories of shark attack against man were reduced to a form handleable by automatic data retrieval systems. Numerous probes by computer were made to (a) provide statistical significance to the existence or absence of common factors associated with known instances of predaceous shark behavior, and (b) evaluate the present approach to gathering meaningful data on shark attack and thereby determine requirements for maintaining such an effort in the future. Although information… 
Changing patterns of shark attacks in Australian waters

  • 2011
The increase in shark attacks over the past two decades is consistent with international statistics of shark attacks increasing annually because of the greater numbers of people in the water, and there is no evidence of increasing shark numbers that would influence the rise of attacks in Australian waters.
An Analysis of Shark Attacks in the State of Florida
In the state of Florida, there are approximately five shark attacks that occur annually. To date, shark attack “hot spots” throughout the state appear to be purely anecdotal, rooted in local lore.
Predicting potential future reduction in shark bites on people
This work used the Australian Shark Attack File from 1900 to 2020 to develop sinusoidal time-series models of per capita incidents, and stochastically projected these to 2066 to predict the number of people who could potentially avoid being bitten by sharks in Australia if they wear personal electronic deterrents.
Science, policy, and the public discourse of shark “attack”: a proposal for reclassifying human–shark interactions

There are few phrases in the Western world that evoke as much emotion or as powerful an image as the words “shark” and “attack.” However, not all “shark attacks” are created equal. Under current
Use of forensic analysis to better understand shark attack behaviour.
During a shark-human interaction project in South Africa, a white shark was filmed biting a vertically positioned person at the water surface, and exhibiting distinct approach patterns leading to the bite.
When Sharks (Don't) Attack: Wild Animal Agency in Historical Narratives
Compared to the endangered animals described in Peter Matthiessen's Wildlife in America, the shark that attacked and consumed Robert Pamperin in June 1959 off La Jolla, California, suggests that a
A review of shark agonistic displays: comparison of display features and implications for shark–human interactions
Shark agonistic displays are most readily elicited by rapid, direct diver approach when food is absent and potential escape routes restricted, and such displays appear to be motivated by defence of self or the immediately surrounding space rather than defence of territory or resources.
Regional movements of the tiger shark, Galeocerdo cuvier, off Northeastern Brazil: inferences regarding shark attack hazard.
Both pop-up locations and depth data suggest that tiger shark movements were conducted mostly over the continental shelf, whereas a previous study suggested that attacking sharks could be following northward currents and that they were being attracted shoreward by approaching vessels.
Sharks senses and shark repellents.
The key attributes of the various sensory systems of sharks are summarized and residual knowledge gaps that are relevant to the development of effective shark repellents are highlighted to highlight the continued need for basic research on shark sensory biology and the use of a multi-sensory approach when developing or deploying shark repellers.


Abstract : This list of shark attacks was prepared from the documented file in the Division of Fishes, United States National Museum, under the sponsorship of the Biology Branch of the Office of
Abstract : Plasticized bags were tested and found to offer advantages over chemical repellents and electrical devices that were tested for effectiveness in protecting humans against shark attack,
The Role of Olfaction in Shark Predation
It seems unlikely that any shark species could maintain itself entirely by scavenging operations, except perhaps in areas where man provides forage such as bait, fish offal, or other forms of edible garbage, and possibly other senses such as hearing are also involved.
Predation of Sharks on Man
An analysis of 1,406 shark attack cases has revealed some of the factors that may impell sharks to bite man. Mostunprovoked shark attacks take place where a concentration of bathers occur, usually

Refrigeration of patients showed that man's body temperature may be reduced by several degrees without endangering life, but the environments employed during induction were too short duration to establish tolerance limits.
