Episode 2: The Arctic Jungle with Dr. Kate Stafford and Dr. Jennifer Miksis-Olds

Breaking Waves

It’s easy to picture what the Arctic Ocean looks like, but have you ever thought about what it sounds like? On today’s episode, we explore the underwater sounds of the Arctic and how soundscapes can be used to learn about underwater ecosystems. We are joined by two of the leading researchers in ocean acoustics Dr. Kate Stafford and Dr. Jennifer Miksis-Olds.  Dr. Kate Stafford is a senior principal oceanographer at the Applied Physics Lab and an affiliate associate professor at the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington. Dr. Jennifer Miksis-Olds is the director of the Center for Acoustic Research and Education, a University of New Hampshire (UNH) research professor in the School of Marine Science & Ocean Engineering, and a researcher at the UNH Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping.

Dr. KATE STAFFORD on What the Whales Hear /198

For The Wild

The bowhead whale can live up to 200 years old, meaning that the bowhead whales of today know and remember a world that sounded, tasted, and felt very different than the one we live in. Perhaps their living memory has yet to normalize marine pollution, anthropogenic sounds, and the underwater effects of globalization and heavy industrialization. In this episode of For The Wild with Dr. Kate Stafford, we listen to the many songs the ocean body sings, asking; how does a warming climate alter the Arctic’s soundscape? Why are the waters of the Arctic becoming louder, and what does this mean for kin like the bowhead? Dr. Kate Stafford’s research focuses on using passive acoustic monitoring to examine migratory movements, geographic variation, and physical drivers of marine mammals, particularly large whales. Kate’s current research focuses on the changing acoustic environment of the Arctic and how changes, from sea ice declines to increasing industrial human use, may be influencing subarctic and Arctic marine mammals.
