Welcome to the tenth episode of Below the Tide! Jennifer Wladichuk has just completed her postdoc studying Southern Resident Killer Whale echolocation, and using it to assess the impacts of underwater noise on this at-risk species. In this episode Jennifer explains the basics of echolocation and how sound travels underwater, as well as the way it is recorded. We also chat about the journey Jennifer took to get to where she is as a marine biologist now. She is currently working at JASCO Applied Sciences as an acoustician, where she monitors killer whale vocalizations.
Episode 11 is all about underwater acoustics, and the impacts of noise pollution on Southern Resident Killer Whales. This is a continuation from episode 10, so if you haven't listened to that one - head on back to get an intro to Jennifer Wladichuk! Jen tells us about the motivation behind acoustic research, and where it is leading into the future.
Episode 12 is all about Jennifer's fieldwork through her different research projects! She shares the real stories behind what science looks like in remote locations, and the amazing things you get to sea as a marine scientist. From kayaking with her gear in British Columbia, to petting whales in California, Jen has definitely had a unique experience in the field! If you haven't listened to her last two episodes, I would recommend going back to episode 10 and 11 so that you can get the full run-down of her research!
