Abstract
Defence R&D Canada – Atlantic has an ongoing research program that requires the transmission of acoustic energy in an undersea environment. Though the transmissions are generally at a relatively low level, every effort must be made to mitigate the potential for impact on marine life. The hearing ability of toothed whales has been well studied and has been well published compared to the ability of baleen whales. A literature review related to the hearing ability of, and potential for adverse impact on baleen whales was the focus of a contracted research activity. This report summarizes the results of that review.
