an excerpt from the latest issue of NatureWILD Magazine
You can read more about Listening Down Deep by Max Bakken in the latest issue of NatureWILD. Max has also shared a spectrogram (below) of humpback whales singing. He provides a good explanation of the use of the spectrogram in the youtube video. Thanks Max!
Author and photographer Max Bakken is the Remote Operations Technician at Pacific Wild, where he designs and installs the central coast hydrophone network. He encountered his first whale at age five, when a beluga at the Vancouver Aquarium spat on him. Since then he has spent much of his life at sea as a photographer, whale watching guide, and fisherman.
