J pod calls in Haro Strait and on the shelf

2012/02/17 in Acoustic analysis, Network news, Orcasound lab, southern resident

Below are a bunch of southern resident killer whale calls that were just auto-detected at the Orcasound hydrophones (~5km north of Lime Kiln). They include S1, S2, and S10 calls. No calls have been detected yesterday or earlier today at any of the 5 locations in the Salish Sea Hydrophone Network, so these calls are most likely from J pod whales heading south in Haro Strait.

J pod calls were also detected recently on the NEPTUNE Canada hydrophone located on the upper slope of Barkley Canyon (just outside the Strait of Juan de Fuca). You can listen live for them there or play this recording of what they sounded like on 2/6/12 at 00:23 (about 5 hours before the Canadian sonar pings were heard around the eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca).
