An Ocean of Sound: Mammals, Underwater Noise, and Ecosystem Health
The underwater soundscape is a critical snapshot of the world underneath the waves. Sound is essential for marine life survival - especially for marine mammals. Join our LIVE event and learn from scientists aboard E/V Nautilus how we’re investigating whale and dolphin vocalizations deploying underwater microphones in Hawaiian waters during our From Shore to the Abyss Program with the National Geographic Society.
Join OET and NGS marine mammal project team members Carissa Cabrera, Dr. Matthias Hoffmann Kuhnt, Abel Ho, and Dr. Adam Pack and get your questions answered in this interactive Project Panel event to learn more about the importance of audio in ecosystem health.
From Shore to the Abyss: Exploration of Marine Mammal Communication and Shark Communities in the Main Hawaiian Islands
In our first leg of the brand-new expedition series From Shore to the Abyss, we are teaming up with (and receiving funding from) the National Geographic Society to study shallow waters near Maui and Hawaiʻi island. Project teams on this leg will combine cutting-edge technologies with indigenous Hawaiian knowledge to increase knowledge and understanding of marine life. The work will focus on sharks and marine mammals—apex predators who are culturally significant to the Hawaiian people.
