Distribution, abundance, behavior and bioacoustics of endangered whales in the western Beaufort and northeastern Chukchi seas, 1979-87 : final report( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aerial surveys of bowhead whales and, secondarily, other marine mammals were made from 1 Sep - 23 Oct 1987 in the western Beaufort and northeastern Chukchi Seas. A shore-based acoustic monitoring station was maintained at Barrow, Alaska from 9 Sept 21 Oct 1987 to record the calls of migrating bowhead whales as they passed into the northeastern Chukchi Sea. Survey results and observations on bowhead whale distribution, relative abundance and density, migration patterns, general behavior, and sound production are presented. Presented also are survey results and observations on gray whale distribution, relative abundance, and general behavior on belukha and walrus distribution, and relative abundance. Incidental sightings of all marine mammals are reported. This report also summarizes the study efforts made between 1979 and 1987.

Distribution, abundance, behavior and bioacoustics of endangered whales in the Alaskan Beaufort and eastern Chukchi seas, 1979-86( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aerial surveys and acoustic recordings of bowhead whales and, secondarily, other marine mammals were made from mid-August 1986 through October 1986 in the eastern Chukchi and Alaskan Beaufort Sea. In addition, a shore-based acoustic station was established on Barter Island, Alaska to record the calls of migrating bowhead whales as they passed through the eastern Alaskan Beaufort Sea. Survey results and observations on bowhead whale distribution, relative abundance and density, migration patterns, general behavior, and sound production are presented. Presented here also are survey results and observations on gray whale distribution, relative abundance, and general behavior. Incidental sightings of all marine mammals are reported

Aerial surveys of endangered whales in the Northern Bering, Eastern Chukchi, and Alaskan Beaufort Seas, 1984, with a six year review, 1979-1984( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aerial surveys and acoustic recordings of bowhead whales and, secondarily, other marine mammals were made from mid-April through mid-May and from mid-July through October 1984 in the northern Bering, eastern Chukchi, and Alaskan Beaufort Seas. Survey results and observations of bowhead distribution, relative abundance, migration patterns, general behavior, and sound production for spring and fall seasons are presented. Presented here also are survey results and observations on gray whale distribution, relative abundance, and general behavior. Incidental sightings of all marine mammals are reported. (Author)
Survey of oceanographic and meteorological parameters of importance to the site selection of an Ocean Food and Energy Farm (OFEF) in the eastern Pacific : final report, July 1975-September 1976 : prepared for U.S. Energy Research & Development Administration by P. F Seligman( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oceanographic and meteorological parameters necessary for selection of productive Ocean Food and Energy Farm (OFEF) sites are presented and compared for the eastern Pacific Ocean. Optimum values for biological, chemical, physical, and engineering requirements are estimated for both farm structures and the giant kelp Macrocystis pyrifera, the proposed OFEF crop plant. From these data, requirements, and limitations, preliminary site selection criteria are established. Selection candidate Phase 1 OFEF and future farm sites are given after a thorough review of pertinent data and literature. It is determined that within the area studied, the southern California offshore region from approximately 32 deg 30 min N to 34 deg 30 min. N is best suited for siting preliminary Ocean Farms. Detailed maps and tables of currents, ocean temperatures, winds, nutrient concentrations and other parameters are presented. (Author)

Aerial surveys of endangered whales in the Beaufort, Chukchi, & northern Bering seas( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aerial surveys and acoustic recordings of bowhead whales and other endangered whales were made from April to October 1981 in the Beaufort, Chukchi, and Bering Seas. Bowhead whales were observed in the northern Bering Sea in large concentrations prior to their northward spring migration. Most whales were involved in social activity, including apparent copulation. Many bowhead sounds were recorded during these observations. The bowhead migration was followed through the Beaufort Sea from Pt. Barrow to Herschel Is. along a migration corridor centered at 71 deg 30 min. N latitude. The summer survey efforts concentrated on gray whale distribution in the Chukchi and northern Bering Sea and delineated a high-density feeding area between St. Lawrence Island and the Bering Strait. During these surveys, normal gray whale behaviors were observed in the presence of seismographic sounds. The fall nearshore bowhead migration through the Beaufort Sea moved slowly to the west along the 20-m contour line. Feeding behavior was noted most often. This report describes all results of 1981 surveys and summarizes the spring and fall migrations of the bowhead whale through the Beaufort Sea for 1979, 1980, and 1981. (Author)
Bowhead whale behavior in relation to seismic exploration, Alaskan Beaufort Sea, autumn 1981 by M. A Fraker( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The behaviour of bowhead whales in the eastern part of the Alaskan Beaufort Sea or near the Alaska/Yukon border were observed from an aircraft from Sept. 12 to Oct. 15, 1981. Some observations were made when the whales were exposed to noise impulses from seismic vessels and compared with those that were not
A vessel class comparison of physiological, affective state and psychomotor performance changes in men at sea : final report by Steven F Wiker( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A field study was conducted to compare the influence of vessel motions, characteristic to a 89' Navy experimental Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull (SWATH) vessel, a 95' Coast Guard Patrol Boat and a 378' Coast Guard High Endurance Cutter, upon motion sickness incidence and severity, physiological indices of stress, affective state and psychomotor performance in male Coast Guardsmen. Psychometer performance (Navigation Plotting, Complex Counting, Code Substitution, Spoke Test, Time Estimation and Critical Tracking), motion sickness symptomatology, urine output and specific gravity, stress hormone excretion, heart and sweat rate, and subject mood were repeatedly sampled for eight hours a day during three control days in four-hour octagonal patterns about a wave measurement buoy. All vessels were instrumented with accelerometers to continuously record vertical, lateral and longitudinal accelerations within the test compartments located below decks amidships and roll, pitch and heave motions at the vessel centers of gravity
