Abstract : Physical description: 1 VHS video; 1/2 in.; col.; sd.; mono; 13 mins; standard playback sp. The previously unknown, but hypothesized effect of pressure on whales may be important in evaluating and mitigating the impact of human-made sound in the sea. For hearing tests,two white whales made 885 dives to a submerged platform at 5,100,200 and 300 meters in the PacificOcean. the test was an efforts to understand the effects of deep ocean pressure on whale hearing physiology, sonar acoustics, and diving performance. This video report documents the study that was conducted off San Clemente Island, CA. This knowledge is important in assessing the effects of ocean noise pollution on whales and other deep-diving mammals
