Research tracks whales by listening to sounds

... OSU researchers begin picking up sounds of ships, marine landslides ?and whales. An engineer at the center, Haru Matsumoto, then developed an autonomous hydrophone that can be deployed independently and Mellinger's colleagues placed seven of these instruments in the Gulf of Alaska about five years ago.
