Cornell's Dr. Christopher Clark on 'Whales and Acoustics in the Marine Environment'

2012-03-13 by

Dr. Christopher Clark is director of the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. He is an expert on the science of sound and the effects of noise on whales. In this talk, he explains how science has been able to quantify the loss of acoustic habitat for marine mammals. He is introduced here by Nikos Pastos of the Big Village Network, sponsors of the event.

Dr. Clark moved from the microphone during parts of his talk, so some sections are difficult to hear. There also are some loud sound effects when he demonstrates the way sound moves in the marine environment.
