Mysticete whale calls were monitored/recorded via deployment of
directional sonobuoys during March-August 2001. This monitoring
technique is used to study whale distribution, behavior and aid in
estimating populations. Deployments were either random or when whales
were observed. The observed calls are identified by species.
Ancillary ... calls by seals are reported but not identified by species.
The survey area included the continental margin to the west of the
Antarctic Peninsula extending from the northern tip of Adelaide Island
to the southern portion of Alexander Island, Crystal Sound, and
