  • Distinctions in sound patterns of calls by killer whales (Orcinus Orca) from analysis of computer sound features 

    Watkins, William A.; Daher, Mary Ann; DiMarzio, Nancy A.; Reppucci, Gina (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-03)
    Calls of killer whales, Orcinus orca, were analyzed using computed sound features to classify sound patterns and identify call similarties. Calls were classified and separated according to the podfamily group within clans ...
