Title All acoustic sound files of killer whale vocalisations analyzed for this manuscript
Downloaded 53 times
Description All vocalisations analysed for this manuscript are included in this zip folder as .wav files. There are a total of 142 whistles and burst-pulse vocalisations that were analysed and categorized accordingly. There are also 2 echolocation clicks that are discussed in this manuscript. Acoustic recordings were obtained with two devices. Primarily recordings were undertaken with a High Tech Inc. HTI-96-MIN hydrophone with built-in pre-amplifier (flat frequency response of 2 Hz to 30 kHz; sensitivity -164.1 dB re 1 V/µPa), fitted to a Sound Devices 722 digital recorder sampling at 96 kHz, 24-bit. Secondary to this, a SoundTrap (Ocean Instruments, New Zealand) —a self-contained underwater sound recorder—was rigged to a tow-line and deployed overside during an encounter when the vessel was travelling less than 5 knots. The SoundTrap sampled at 192 kHz, 16-bit.
