This recording of gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus) vocalizations 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.

The recording was made on 18 August 2015. © 2015 Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute

Thanks to Tetyana Margolina for identifying the vocalizations. These examples are from a 10-minute period; recording between calls was shortened to focus on the calls. Some gray whale M1 calls are also included (sound like a knock).
