Peter Tyack: The intriguing sound of marine mammals

If you liked the sounds of BBC’s Planet Earth, you’ll love this video. It’s an inter­est­ing glimpse into marine sounds of the deep blue. Peter Tyack of Woods Hole talks about the amaz­ing ways whales use sound and song to com­mu­ni­cate across hun­dreds of miles of ocean.

(Peter Tyack stud­ies the the social behav­ior and acoustic com­mu­ni­ca­tion in whales and dol­phins, learn­ing how these ani­mals use sound to per­form crit­i­cal activ­i­ties, such as mat­ing and locat­ing food.)
