Right Whale Study

This study was carried out by Advanced Offshore Operations, a subsidiary of CSCS, who designed and carried out an underwater glider  mission plan along the shelf break in the mid-Atlantic bight. A Seaglider (Kongsberg Underwater Technology Inc.) was used with an integrated passive monitoring system in order to detect vocalizations of Right whales.

For more information, please contact Dr. Doug Nowacek at Duke University, the principle investigator of the project.
