Abstract : The characteristics of sound transmission over snow-covered territory or in snow tunnels are discussed, along with work conducted in the Antarctic. Extensive recording under the ice of Weddell Seals in the Antarctic and under- ice recordings at Point Barrow of Arctic fur seals and other animals have been made and are discussed. In addition, information on the killer whales in captivity in Seattle provides a new insight into the differences in the sounds of male and female whales.
