NOTES: Notes from RDAT: "S#556, Blue whales. SB#56 Ch. 57 - Bad; SB#57 Ch. 63 - dropped later before CTD station, some good blue whale vocals."
MLNS notes: Location, school size, and Beaufort state data taken from the STAR2000 Marine Mammal report for sighting #556; however, the time of the sighting (according to the report) was 1637, so the actual location is likely somewhat different from the lat/long given here. Date and time were taken from the reading on the DAT itself. This section began at 19:02:35; second section began at 19:56:00; and third section began at 20:30:45. All were filtered with a ZSys Hi Shelf filter -95dB above 4kHz. Confidence interval assigned by MLNS (90% with sighting data; 75% without) [24Aug2004 CB]. SEAOCEAN
