The Istanbul Strait (Bosphorus) is a part of the Turkish Straits System, connecting the Aegean Sea and the Black Sea. There are three cetacean species in the Strait, namely the…


Harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) static acoustic monitoring: Laboratory detection thresholds of T-PODs are reflected in field sensitivity

Kyhn, Line A.; Tougaard, Jakob; Teilmann, Jonas; Wahlberg, Magnus; Jørgensen, Poul B.; Bech, Nikolaj I.
Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom (2008)

The T-POD (Timing POrpoise Detector) is a self-contained acoustic data logger used for detecting and monitoring the presence of echolocation clicks of small cetaceans. It has become a standard tool…


Diurnal variation in harbour porpoise detection – Potential implications for management

Williamson, L. D.; Brookes, K. L.; Scott, B. E.; Graham, I. M.; Thompson, P. M.
Marine Ecology Progress Series (2017)

Robust information on animal distributions and foraging behaviour is required to target management and conservation measures for protected species and populations. Visual survey data are commonly used to model these…


Year-round spatiotemporal distribution of harbour porpoises within and around the Maryland wind energy area

Wingfield, Jessica E.; O’Brien, Michael; Lyubchich, Vyacheslav; Roberts, Jason J.; Halpin, Patrick N.; Rice, Aaron N.; Bailey, Helen
PLOS ONE (2017)

Offshore windfarms provide renewable energy, but activities during the construction phase can affect marine mammals. To understand how the construction of an offshore windfarm in the Maryland Wind Energy Area…


Responses of bottlenose dolphins and harbor porpoises to impact and vibration piling noise during harbor construction

Graham, Isla M.; Pirotta, Enrico; Merchant, Nathan D.; Farcas, Adrian; Barton, Tim R.; Cheney, Barbara; Hastie, Gordon D.; Thompson, Paul M.
Ecosphere (2017)

The development of risk assessments for the exposure of protected populations to noise from coastal construction is constrained by uncertainty over the nature and extent of marine mammal responses to…


Harbour Porpoises on Horns Reef – Effects of the Horns Reef Wind Farm (Final Report)

Tougaard, Jakob; Carstensen, Jacob; Wisz, Mary S.; Jespersen, Martin; Teilmann, Jonas; Ilsted Bech, Nikolaj; Skov, Henrik
NERI Technical Report to Vattenfall A/S (2006)

The monitoring program on harbour porpoises at Horns Rev Offshore Wind Farm in the Danish North Sea, initiated in 1999, has now come to an end with collection of final…


Passive acoustic methods for fine-scale tracking of harbour porpoises in tidal rapids

Macaulay, Jamie; Gordon, Jonathan; Gillespie, Douglas; Malinka, Chloë; Northridge, Simon
The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (2017)

The growing interest in generating electrical power from tidal currents using tidal turbine generators raises a number of environmental concerns, including the risk that marine mammals might be injured or…
