First records of golden trevally (Gnathodon speciosus, Carangidae), sharp-tail mola (Masturus lanceolatus, Molidae) and evidence for white shark (Carcharodon carcharias, Lamnidae) in the Galápagos islands, Ecuador (PDF)

Five specimens represented possible new records to the archipelago, but insufficient material was available at CDRS to confirm identification.

Proximate measurements of acoustic emissions associated with the installation and operation of an exploration jack-up drilling-rig in the North Sea (PDF)

Underwater sound recordings were made from the Noble Kolskaya jack-up gas-exploration drilling-rig in the German region of the Dogger Bank, North Sea. The aim was to document received levels, characteristics, and range-dependence of sounds produced by the rig’s site installation and drilling during the winter. Sound pressure levels (SPLs) generated by the Kolskaya were similar […]
