        abstract:  The National Marine Mammal Laboratory (NMML) has conducted passive acoustic monitoring in the Bering, Chukchi, and Western Beaufort Seas to determine spatio-temporal distribution of marine mammals as well as environmental and anthropogenic noise. Species and sounds detected on sonobuoys include fin, blue, bowhead, humpback, killer, gray, minke, sperm, beluga, sei, and North Pacific right whales, walrus, ribbon and bearded seals, and seismic airguns. This short-term passive acoustic monitoring was also used to locate vocalizing species of interest for photo-identification, tagging, and behavioral studies. Recordings are available since 2007 in the Bering Sea, since 2010 in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, and in 2013 in the Gulf of Alaska. Both omnidirectional and DiFAR sonobuoys have been used. The vast majority of the sonobuoys were deployed opportunistically along the tracks of research cruises funded by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). In one year (2009), sonobuoys were deployed opportunistically from an aerial survey plane. All sonobuoys were provided by the United States Navy (Naval Operational Logistics Support Center, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crance Division, and the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy).
        purpose:  The purpose of these sonobuoy deployments is to assess short-term presence, distribution, and relative abundance of marine mammals in the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas, and also to locate vocalizing species of interest for photo-identification, tagging, and behavioral studies.
