Regular clicks from diving sperm whales, both large bull males and smaller females, were recorded in deep oceanic water off the Azores and subsequently sampled to computer disks for digital analysis. A total of 8540 clicks were marked and analyzed. Simple temporal analysis of the interclick intervals during feeding dives revealed mean click rates for male sperm whales of 1.1713 s-1 and 1.9455 s-1 for females. Fourier analysis showed distinctive peaks in the spectra of bull male sperm whales at… CONTINUE READING
