Holocene Bowhead Whale (Balaena mysticetus) Skeletal Morphometrics and Taxonomy in the Eastern Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Savelle, James M.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1990
Summary: The researcher and his team will take a series of measurements on crania and mandibles of naturally stranded early Holocene bowhead whales. This will enable the original length of individual bowheads at death to be determined. These data will have immediate applications in the fields of environmental change and Thule archaeology....

Responses of Marine Mammals to Vessel Noise
Principal Investigator: Cosens, Susan
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The research will test playback as a method of studying responses of beluga whales to underwater vessel noise....

Assessment of Potential Masking of Marine Mammal Sounds by Ship Noise
Principal Investigator: Cosens, Susan
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: In Sachs Harbour, the researchers will continue to study whether underwater shipping noise interferes with beluga communication. They will record whale calls and measure their source decibel levels in relation to normal background noise and underwater vessel noise. ship noise....
