"When we study sound, we're looking at the frequency or the pitch of the sound, and then also the intensity. I'm focused exclusively on low frequencies, really low pitch sounds that can travel quite a distance in the ocean."
A conversation with Samara Haver (Postdoctoral Scholar at Oregon State University) about the role of acoustics research in developing technologies for ocean life conservation. Presented by Longitude fellow Tony Zhou.
As part of our Longitudes of Imagination theme, we are exploring the roles of individuals, technologies and research in ocean science and space technology. In this series, the fellows share highlights from their conversations with scientists and the members of NOAA’s soundscape monitoring project at the U.S. Marine Sanctuaries.
What are they hearing underwater? What are they measuring? Who are they? And What are we learning?
