Vocal universals and geographic variations in the acoustic repertoire of the common bottlenose dolphin

A. R. Luís, L. J. May-Collado, N. Rako-Gospić, T. Gridley, E. Papale, A. Azevedo, M. A. Silva, G. Buscaino, D. Herzing, M. E. dos Santos
2021 Scientific Reports  
For the common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), studies on acoustic variability are scarce, focus on a single signal type—whistles and on the influence of environmental variables.  ...  Overall, these dolphins present a rich acoustic repertoire, with 24 distinct signal sub-types including: whistles, burst-pulsed sounds, brays and bangs.  ...  We also acknowledge the contribute of Simon Elwen at the Mammal Research Institute, University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa for the research effort in Namibia.  ...

Sound‐pressure level distribution in a long, narrow hallway: Measurements versus results from a computer model with scattering from surface roughness and diffraction

Lily M. Wang, Jonathan Rathsam, Claus L. Christensen, Jens H. Rindel
2005 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Over the course of 1 year ͑April 2004 -March 2005͒, dolphin whistles were recorded as part of an ongoing study of the effects of human activity on wild bottlenose dolphins.  ...  Preliminary analysis of the data suggests that both the rate of whistling and the types of whistles produced vary as a function of dolphin behavior.  ...  The deconvolution is based on a collection of known excitation signals of the maximum-length sequence ͑MLS͒ related classes, widely used in the spread spectrum communication, but less well known in acoustics  ...
