This recording of blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) A and B calls is part of a series of recordings from an oceanic soundscape project using a deep-sea cabled observatory off the California coast. More information about this research project is available in a publication.

Thanks to Mark Fischer of Aguasonic Acoustics for processing the original recording.

The recording was made on 6 November 2015. © 2017 Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute

You will need a subwoofer or good headphones to hear this low frequency sound. You can also listen to blue whale B calls that have been sped up to be audible on simpler audio systems (see MBARI_MARS collection).
