      In order to properly consider how behavioral responses to anthropogenic noise affect marine mammals and establish safety limits for sonar operations, there is a need to establish behavioral impact criteria. In order to ...

      Kvadsheim, Petter Helgevold; DeRuiter, Stacy; Sivle, Lise Doksæter; Goldbogen, Jeremy; Hansen, Rune Roland; Miller, Patrick J.O.; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Calambokidis, John; Friedlaender, Ari; Visser, Fleur; Tyack, Peter L.; Kleivane, Lars; Southall, Brandon (2017)
      Minke whales are difficult to study and little information exists regarding their responses to anthropogenic sound. This study pools data from behavioural response studies off California and Norway. Data are derived from ...

      Marine mammals are sensitive to sound in their environment and there is a continuing need to quantify the sensitivity of the animals to behavioural disturbance, and determine how potential behavioural changes may affect ...
    • Behavioural responses of cetaceans to naval signals in Norwegian waters - the 3S-2012 cruise report 

      Kvadsheim, Petter H.; Lam, Frans-Peter; Miller, Patrick; Wensveen, Paul; Visser, Fleur; Sivle, Lise D.; Kleivane, Lars; Curé, Charlotte; Ensor, Paul; van Ijsselmuide, Sander; Dekeling, René (2012-11-01)
      Marine mammals are sensitive to sound in their environment and there is a continuing need to quantify the sensitivity of the animals to behavioural disturbance, in order to regulate the use of powerful anthropogenic sound ...
    • Biological significance of sperm whale responses to sonar: Comparison with anti-predator responses 

      Curé, Charlotte; Isojunno, Saana; Visser, Fleur; Wensveen, Paul J.; Sivle, Lise Doksæter; Kvadsheim, Petter Helgevold; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Miller, Patrick J.O. (2016)
      A key issue when investigating effects of anthropogenic noise on cetacean behavior is to identify the biological significance of the responses. Predator presence can be considered a natural high-level disturbance stimulus ...
    • Cetaceans and naval sonar : the 3S-2009 cruise report 

      Kvadsheim, Petter H.; Lam, Frans-Peter; Miller, Patrick; Kleivane, Lars; Alves, Ana Catarina; Antunes, Ricardo; Bocconcelli, Alex; Ijsselmuide, Sander van; Olivierse, Marijke; Visser, Fleur (2009)
      Forsvaret har utrykt behov for å få kartlagt sjøpattedyrs følsomhet overfor sonarsignaler, også atferdsmessige påvirkninger. 3S-konsortiet, som for tiden består av fire partnere, FFI, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution ...
    • Disturbance-specific social responses in long-finned pilot whales, Globicephala melas 

      Visser, Fleur; Curé, Charlotte; Kvadsheim, Petter Helgevold; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Tyack, Peter L.; Miller, Patrick J.O. (2016)
      Social interactions among animals can influence their response to disturbance. We investigated responses of long-finned pilot whales to killer whale sound playbacks and two anthropogenic sources of disturbance: tagging ...
    • First indications that northern bottlenose whales are sensitive to behavioural disturbance from anthropogenic noise 

      Miller, Patrick J.O.; Kvadsheim, Petter Helgevold; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Tyack, Peter L.; Curé, Charlotte; DeRuiter, Stacy; Kleivane, Lars; Sivle, Lise Doksæter; van IJsselmuide, Sander P; Visser, Fleur; Wensveen, Paul J.; von Benda-Beckmann, Alexander M.; López, L Martin; Narazaki, T; Hooker, S. (2015)
      Although northern bottlenose whales were the most heavily hunted beaked whale, we have little information about this species in its remote habitat of the North Atlantic Ocean. Underwater anthropogenic noise and disruption ...
    • Lack of behavioural responses of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) indicate limited effectiveness of sonar mitigation 

      Wensveen, Paul; Kvadsheim, Petter Helgevold; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; vonBenda-Beckmann, Sander; Sivle, Lise Doksæter; Visser, Fleur; Cure, Charlotte; Tyack, Peter L.; Miller, Patrick James O'Malley (2017)
      Exposure to underwater sound can cause permanent hearing loss and other physiological effects in marine animals. To reduce this risk, naval sonars are sometimes gradually increased in intensity at the start of transmission ...
    • Naval sonar disrupts foraging in humpback whales 

      Sivle, Lise Doksæter; Wensveen, Paul Jacobus; Kvadsheim, Petter Helgevold; Lam, Frans-Peter Alexander; Visser, Fleur; Curé, Charlotte; Harris, Catriona M.; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Miller, Patrick James O'Malley (2016)
      Modern long-range naval sonars are a potential disturbance for marine mammals and can cause disruption of feeding in cetaceans. We examined the lunge-feeding behaviour of humpback whales Megaptera novaeangliae before, ...
    • Pilot Whales Attracted to Killer Whale Sounds: Acoustically-Mediated Interspecific Interactions in Cetaceans 

      Curé, Charlotte; Antunes, Ricardo; Samarra, Filipa; Alves, Ana Catarina; Visser, Fleur; Kvadsheim, Petter Helgevold; Miller, Patrick J.O. (2012)
      In cetaceans’ communities, interactions between individuals of different species are often observed in the wild. Yet, due to methodological and technical challenges very little is known about the mediation of these ...
    • Predator sound playbacks reveal strong avoidance responses in a fight strategist baleen whale 

      Curé, Charlotte; Sivle, Lise Doksæter; Visser, Fleur; Wensveen, Paul J.; Isojunno, Saana; Harris, Catriona M.; Kvadsheim, Petter Helgevold; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Miller, Patrick James O'Malley (2015)
