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…


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…

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…


Cetacean distribution in the southern Black Sea: An acoustic approach

Saydam, Gülce
Master's Thesis - Middle East Technical University (2015)

Large numbers of small cetaceans (common dolphin, harbor porpoises and bottlenose dolphins) were hunted in the Black Sea until the hunting of cetaceans was banned in Turkey in 1983. Even…


Comparing the performance of C-PODs and SoundTrap/PAMGUARD in detecting the acoustic activity of harbor porpoises (Phocoena phocoena)

Sarnocinska, Joanna; Tougaard, Jakob; Johnson, Mark; Madsen, Peter T.; Wahlberg, Magnus
Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (2016)

The C-POD logger is a widely used instrument for passive acoustic monitoring of harbor porpoises, but the absence of a continuous recording in this device makes it difficult to verify…
