The DTAG was developed by WHOI principal investigators in 1999 with funding from ONR and WHOI endowment. This non-invasive tag records the sounds heard, and made, by the marine mammal together with its depth and orientation (i.e., pitch, roll, and heading), in a synchronized fashion throughout the dive cycle.
