Acoustic Methods and Technologies for Research and Monitoring of Cetaceans: New Approaches for Improved Management of Whale and Dolphin Populations Impacted by Human Activities

Tom will be talking about some of passive acoustic methods and technologies that his company has developed and uses to research monitor and conduct mitigation of human activities on marine mammals.  He will include examples from recent research projects and will discuss plans to use these technologies for conservation of endangered and protected populations of marine mammals in developing countries, including Guiana dolphins in Brazil, and Irrawaddy dolphin in Vietnam.
