Jennifer Miksis-Olds is a research professor and associate director of re- search at the School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering, University of New Hampshire, Durham. Her re- search employs acoustic methodolo- gies to answer biological questions in
the marine environment. Her primary interests include patterns and trends in ocean sound, animal behavior and communication, and the effect of anthropogenic activi-
ties on animals and their environment. Aspects of acous- tics, biology, oceanography, and engineering are com- bined to create the interdisciplinary approach necessary to extend the remote study of the ocean and of animals in their natural environment beyond where it is today.
Bruce Martin (JASCO Applied Sciences, Dartmouth, Canada) has been working in acoustic data collection and analysis since 1991. From 1991 to 2007, he was involved with the development of com- bined active-passive sonars. In 2007, Bruce switched to environmental acous-
tics and soundscapes. He has worked on numerous projects including the Chukchi Sea acoustic monitoring project (2007- 2014), Tappan Zee pile-driving acoustic monitoring projects (2010-2014), and a wide-area monitoring program on Cana- da’s East Coast (2015-2018). Bruce is pursuing a PhD at Dal- housie University, Halifax, Canada, where his research inter- est is in soundscape ecology, especially automated techniques for quantifying sources in the soundscape.
Peter Tyack is a professor of marine mammal biology at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. His research focuses on behavioral ecology, acoustic commu- nication, and social behavior in marine mammals. He has studied reproductive advertisement in baleen whales, indi-
vidually distinctive contact calls, and echolocation in deep- diving toothed whales. He has developed new methods to sample behavior continuously from marine mammals, in- cluding the development of sound-and-orientation record- ing tags. He has developed a series of studies on responses to anthropogenic sounds, including the effects of oil explo- ration on baleen and sperm whales and the effects of naval sonar on toothed whales.
