Description Absolute sound pressure levels and relative particle velocity of five noise eggs measured at 50 cm from the egg. SPL in the field was recorded at 1 m depth in a water column of approximately 2.5 m above a muddy bottom. SPL and PVL of the egg were also recorded in a glass aquarium with a water depth of 40 cm.

Title Recordings used for Figure 5

Description Propagation of sound pressure of the noise egg placed in a glass aquarium (See Fig. 3 for set-up). Absolute SPL was recorded at 10, 40 and 70 cm from the egg at two heights (H): 10 cm and 20 cm from the bottom. Recordings were made in water depths (D) of 30 cm and 40 cm. Recordings of ambient noise were made in the middle of the aquarium (40cm from the egg) and 20cm from the side (10 and 70cm from the egg) in the same water depths.

Description Fig. S1. Recordings of particle velocity of a noise egg in a large aquarium measured for the egg used in the set-up (for description of the set-up, see material and methods). The noise egg was placed in the middle of the aquarium with its centre at a depth of 15 cm in 40 cm water. PVL was measured at three different depths: 10 cm (Z = -10), 20 cm (Z = 0) and 30 cm (Z = 10) and at four different distances (Y): 10, 20, 30 and 40 cm) to the right from the egg.

Title Recordings used for Suppl Figure 2
Downloaded 6 times
Description Recordings of different anthropogenic and natural sounds for comparison with the noise egg. Sounds were recorded in a shallow bay close to IMR Austevoll, Norway. All sounds were recorded with the same SM2+ recorder (www.wildlifeacoustics.com, Wildlife Acoustics, Inc., Maynard MA, USA; Sampling rate 48 kHz, to 16 bit WAV, 2 Hz high-pass filter, -115dBV equivalent input noise) and a standard hydrophone (HTI-96-MIN: Recording bandwidth: 2Hz – 48kHz, Sensitivity: -165dB re: 1 V/uPa).
