Marine animals like the elusive beaked whale are notoriously difficult to study, as they are rarely seen. Fortunately, scientists can hear them! These animals use echolocation to forage and those sounds can be recorded in even the most remote and inaccessible areas of the ocean. Join Simone Baumann-Pickering as she details how patterns of echolocation are allowing scientists to document the natural acoustic behavior of a species, and determine if those natural patterns are being disturbed by man-made noise.
