SeaSound Remote Sensing Network
The SeaSound Remote Sensing Network is a partnership of NOAA/NMFS, OrcaSound, Beam Reach, The Whale Museum and many others. Currently, there are 5 hydrophones deployed throughout the Salish Sea Region:
- two on the westside of San Juan Island: Lime Kiln Lighthouse and Smugglers Cove
- Port Townsend Marine Science Center
- the Seattle Aquarium
- Neah Bay (near the Makah Cultural Center)
To listen to live streams from the hydrophones or archived sounds, visit OrcaSound.net.
To listen to the SeaSound hydrophones live, you must be able to receive ShoutCast streams.
iTunes will do the job on Macs, though you may need to copy the link and paste it in "Open Stream" under the "Advanced" menu.
On Windows machines, try the free player from Winamp.
