The Oregon Chapter of the American Cetacean (Whales) Society is holding their monthly speaker series meeting on February 10th at 10:00 AM, Newport Public Library. The event is free and open to the public. Selene Fregosi will present the how and why of using underwater gliders to listen for whales. Autonomous underwater vehicles, or AUVs, outfitted with passive acoustic recorders can be used to study the presence, distribution, and potentially abundance of a variety of marine mammal species. The presentation will reveal how these instruments work, how they’re used in PhD research, and why they are a great new tool for marine mammal science!
