  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Does exposure to noise from human activities compromise sensory information from cephalopod statocysts? 

    Solé Carbonell, Marta; Lenoir, Marc; Durfort, Mercè; López Bejar, Manel; Lombarte Carrera, Antonio; Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; André, Michel (2013-10-15)
    Article

    Many anthropogenic noise sources are nowadays contributing to the general noise budget of the oceans. The extent to which sound in the sea impacts and affects marine life is a topic of considerable current interest both ...
  • Measurement of the atmospheric nu (mu) energy spectrum from 100 GeV to 200 TeV with the ANTARES telescope 

    Adrian Martinez, Silvia; Albert, Andreas; Al Samarai, Imen; André, Michel (2013-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Atmospheric neutrinos are produced during cascades initiated by the interaction of primary cosmic rays with air nuclei. In this paper, a measurement of the atmospheric νμ + ¯νμ energy spectrum in the energy range 0.1–200 ...
  • Search for muon neutrinos from gamma-ray bursts with the ANTARES neutrino telescope using 2008 to 2011 data 

    Adrian Martinez, Silvia; Albert, Andreas; Al Samarai, Imen; André, Michel (2013-10-29)
    Article
    Open Access
    Aims. We search for muon neutrinos in coincidence with GRBs with the ANTARES neutrino detector using data from the end of 2007 to 2011. Methods. Expected neutrino fluxes were calculated for each burst individually. The ...
  • Ultrastructural damage of "loligo vulgaris" and "illex coindetii" statocysts after low frequency sound exposure 

    Solé Carbonell, Marta; Lenoir, Marc; Durfort, Mercè; López Bejar, Manel; Lombarte Carrera, Antonio; André, Michel (2013-10-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    There is a considerable lack of information concerning marine invertebrate sensitivity to sound exposure. However, recent findings on cuttlefish and octopi showed that exposure to artificial noise had a direct consequence ...
