Superpod southbound since Stuart

2011/10/05 in Acoustic analysis, Lime Kiln State Park, Network news, Orcasound lab, southern resident

Yesterday (10/4/11) there were many southern resident killer whale calls automatically and manually detected and recorded on first the Orcasound hydrophones (82 detections from 14:34-16:08 PST) and then the Lime Kiln hydrophones (30 detections from 15:36-16:33). The spectograms and recordings are tabulated below. I heard a lot of S2, S16, and S19 calls along with many clicks. This is consistent with the reports of all three pods by John Boyd on Facebook.

The Beam Reach students observed the orcas at Turn Point at 12:45 (Latitude: 48.69506 Longitude: -123.23662) during a CTD cast. The whales traveled south and southeast, pretty spread out. Meg McDonald heard them first at Orcasound at 14:34 and Lon Brockelhurst reported calls at Lime Kiln at 15:09, and at both Orcasound and Lime Kiln at 16:10.

A continuous recording of the Orcasound hydrophone stream was made by Scott Veirs. A continuous recording of the Lime Kiln north array (4 channels for localization, including one hydrophone with high-frequency response) was made remotely by Jason Wood.

112 Detections
