  • Changes in dive behavior during naval sonar exposure in killer whales, long-finned pilot whales, and sperm whales 

    Sivle, L. D.; Kvadsheim, P. H.; Fahlman, Andreas; Lam, F. P. A.; Tyack, Peter L.; Miller, Patrick J. O. (Frontiers Media, 2012-10-11)
    Anthropogenic underwater sound in the environment might potentially affect the behavior of marine mammals enough to have an impact on their reproduction and survival. Diving behavior of four killer whales (Orcinus orca), ...
  • Deadly diving? Physiological and behavioural management of decompression stress in diving mammals 

    Hooker, Sascha K.; Fahlman, Andreas; Moore, Michael J.; Aguilar De Soto, Natacha; Bernaldo de Quiros, Yara; Brubakk, A. O.; Costa, Daniel P.; Costidis, Alexander M.; Dennison, Sophie; Falke, K. J.; Fernandez, Antonio; Ferrigno, Massimo; Fitz-Clarke, J. R.; Garner, M. M.; Houser, Dorian S.; Jepson, Paul D.; Ketten, Darlene R.; Kvadsheim, P. H.; Madsen, Peter T.; Pollock, N. W.; Rotstein, David S.; Rowles, Teresa K.; Simmons, S. E.; Van Bonn, William; Weathersby, P. K.; Weise, M. J.; Williams, T. M.; Tyack, Peter L. (Royal Society, 2011-12-21)
    Decompression sickness (DCS; ‘the bends’) is a disease associated with gas uptake at pressure. The basic pathology and cause are relatively well known to human divers. Breath-hold diving marine mammals were thought to be ...
  • Estimated tissue and blood N2 levels and risk of decompression sickness in deep-, intermediate-, and shallow-diving toothed whales during exposure to naval sonar 

    Kvadsheim, P. H.; Miller, Patrick J. O.; Tyack, Peter L.; Sivle, L. D.; Lam, F. P. A.; Fahlman, Andreas (Frontiers Media, 2012-05-10)
    Naval sonar has been accused of causing whale stranding by a mechanism which increases formation of tissue N2 gas bubbles. Increased tissue and blood N2 levels, and thereby increased risk of decompression sickness (DCS), ...
