The Earth Day mooring kept us secure all night. Our science goals today are to keep working on methods, practice using and deploying the sound devices and hydrophones, and hopefully encounter actual whales for recording data.We practiced using the acoustic fish tags and saw how far we could detect them off Lime Kiln. The furthest distance was around a quarter of a nautical mile. We used the high frequency hydrophone to record the bleeps from the tags (pings). The raw data from these tests was loaded in a new folder titled with today’s date.
