    The Marine Strategy Framework Directive has officially stated as soon as 2008 the anthropogenic noise due to shipping were to be mitigated. The policy makers, the yards and the ship owners still strongly rely on the expert ...
  • Ultrastructure of the Odontocete Organ of Corti: Scanning and Transmission Electron Microscopy 

    Morell Ybarz, María; Lenoir, Marc; Dabin, Willy; Ferreira, Marisa; Maestre, Iranzu; Degollada Bastos, Eduard; Cazevieille, Chantal; Fortuño, Jose-Manuel; Puel, Jean-Luc; André, Michel (2015-02-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    The morphological study of the Odontocete organ of Corti, together with possible alterations associated with damage from sound exposure, represents a key conservation approach to assess the effects of acoustic pollution ...
  • Searches for clustering in the time integrated skymap of the ANTARES neutrino telescope 

    Adrian Martinez, Silvia; Albert, Andreas; André, Michel (2014-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper reports a search for spatial clustering of the arrival directions of high energy muon neutrinos detected by the ANTARES neutrino telescope. An improved two-point correlation method is used to study the autocorrelation ...
  • A search for neutrino emission from the Fermi bubbles with the ANTARES telescope 

    Adrian Martinez, Silvia; Albert, A.; Al Samarai, Imen; André, Michel; Anton, G.; Anvar, S.; Ardid, M.; Astraatmadja, T.; Baret, B.; Basa, S.; Bertin, V.; Biagi, S.; Bogazzi, C.; Bouhou, B.; Brunner, J.; Morganti, M.; Schmidt, J.; Stolarczyk, Th. (2014-02-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Analysis of the Fermi-LAT data has revealed two extended structures above and below the Galactic Centre emitting gamma rays with a hard spectrum, the so-called Fermi bubbles. Hadronic models attempting to explain the origin ...
  • An acoustic valve within the nose of sperm whales Physeter macrocephalus 

    Huggenberger, Stefan; André, Michel; Oelschläger, Helmut A. (2014-04-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Sperm whales Physeter macrocephalus emit impulsive sound signals in short series of rhythmic clicks (codas) for communication, and in long series of single acoustic events (usual clicks) for echolocation. Both click types ...
  • Real-Time Monitoring of Noise in Cetacean Acoustic Niches 

    André, Michel; Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; Zaugg, Serge Alain; Houégnigan, Ludwig; Castell Balaguer, Joan Vicent; Sánchez, Antonio (2012-11-15)

    Sources of sound produced by human activities induce physical, physiological, and behavioral effects on marine fauna (mammals, reptiles, fish, and invertebrates), effects that can be diverse depending on the proximity to ...
  • Classification of sperm whale clicks (Physeter macrocephalus) with Gaussian-kernel based networks 

    Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; Delory, Eric; André, Michel (2008-11-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    With the aim of classifying sperm whales, this report compares two methods that can use Gaussian functions, a radial basis function network, and support vector machines which were trained with two different approaches known ...
  • Changes in 63 Hz third-octave band sound levels over 42 months recorded at four deep-ocean observatories 

    Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; Ainslie, Michael A.; Robinson, Stephen P.; Prior, Mark K.; André, Michel (2014-02-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The growing scientific and societal concerns about the effects of underwater sound on marine ecosystems have been recently recognised through the introduction of several international initiatives, like the International ...
