Southall, B.; Tyack, P.; Moretti, D.; Clark, C.; Claridge, D.; Boyd, I. (2009). Behavioral Responses of Beaked Whales and Other Cetaceans to Controlled Exposures of Simulated Sonar and Other Sounds [Presentation]. Presented at the 18th Biennial Conference on the BIology of Marine Mammals, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.
Abstract: 
  • Strandings coincident with some sonar training exercises indicates strong negative reactions in certain species and circumstances
  • Vast scientific uncertainty regarding these observations has lead to widely divergent speculation on possible adverse impacts
  • Numerous scientific and government panels/task forces have called for directed behavioral studies
