Marine biologist Nan Hauser has studied humpback whales extensively in the South Pacific. She explains to Scott Pelley on this Sunday's "60 Minutes" why the animals use a complex mix of far-reaching sounds to communicate underwater.

Light and odors don’t travel well, but sound moves about four times faster in water than in air — which means marine mammals often use sounds to communicate. The most famous of these underwater vocalizations is undoubtedly the whale song. Stephanie Sardelis decodes the evocative melodies composed by the world’s largest mammals.

Whales have a complex system of speech that even includes regional dialects, but how does it work exactly?

A “Hydrophone” or underwater microphone and speaker amplifier were used to magnify these rarely heard whale communications during the live experience which was captured on a cell phone. We encourage everyone to continue sharing this experience with their family and friends in hopes of increasing whale appreciation throughout the world!

Christopher Clark reports on his studies of whale communication and the effect of shipping noise.
READ THIS PLEASE!!! Listen to the intriguing sounds of these creatures. Feel yourself swimming amoungst these gentle giants of the deep, while they communicate peacefully and serenely with each other. Allow their haunting melodies to carry you off to a place of complete relaxation. Suzannes71 is right, we must save the whales!! So I made this video. HELP TO SAVE THE WHALES!! Enjoy the sound of the deep!! Thanks for reading, watching, rate and comment!! :D
Today on In Case You Missed It: A new Marine Mammal Science publication found that whales slap the surface of the water to communicate with one another, although what they’re actually saying is still a bit of a mystery. Meanwhile MIT’s CSAIL lab created a CAD-like program to create UAVS. The best part of the software is testing it virtually to see if your creation would fly in real life. The Tesla Coil video by SmarterEveryDay is pretty great and for fun, you may want to watch the Turkish satellite heading up to space. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.

With brains six times the size of our own, the planet’s greatest mammals force a rethink of our own place on planet Earth. James Nestor is an author and journalist who has written for Outside Magazine, Men’s Journal, National Public Radio, The New York Times, Scientific American, Dwell Magazine, The San Francisco Chronicle, and more. His book, DEEP: Freediving, Renegade Science, and What The Ocean Tells Us about Ourselves (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) was released in the United States and UK in June 2014. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
Research shows that orcas use whistles and clicks to communicate with their own species, but Luna, a baby orca who lost his family and tried to make friends with people near Vancouver Island, seemed to think humans might not be smart enough to understand that, so he tried other things that maybe he thought would get through. He certainly got our attention. www.savingluna.com
Whales communicate using melodic sounds or "songs" that can travel more than 100 meters. Oceangoing ships produce noise, mainly from their propellers, that interfere with the ability of whales to communicate. Other types of ships create additional layers of noise. Oil-exploration ships, for example, use reflection seismology to map the ocean floor. Research has shown that these additional noises can interfere with a whale's ability to communicate, causing confusion for the whale.
A new study has found that whales — especially sperm whales — communicate in variations of whalesong depending on differing "cultures"
Pure sounds of nature.
Kapr Divers, Whale Safari & Northern Light tours Saturday afternoon on our small boat (and in the water around it) in Norwegian sea. This is how it looks like when we snorkel with orcas who hunt for herrings. After feeding Killer Whales become as curios as we were. They swam close to the our boat, to Janka /snorkelling girl with orange strap on mask/. They came so close, stop and watch each other try to understand. Checking from under and above with spy hops, sending love... See how long is the Orca stopped in front of the girl. They tried to communicate watching each other eyes... Breathtaking moments! www.coldwaterdiving.eu
Whale watchers with Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari in Dana Point, California, had an extremely unique sighting today when they encountered a very rarely seen giant pod of 60 to 100 sperm whales. Passengers and crew were awestruck when the some of the sperm whales came over and “mugged” the Capt. Dave’s catamaran, which was stationary and in neutral. Passengers also had a once-in-a-lifetime look at the sperm whales from the boat’s Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing Pods. “I've never seen anything like this in my life and only once before have I ever seen a single sperm whale off Dana Point. They were stretched out over almost two miles, diving down, and then new whales surfacing nearby. We got some beautiful drone footage which I am saving for a project I am working on. It was so beaut...
The haunting calls of blue whales can travel across thousands of miles of ocean, and Wild Chronicles is on a mission to find out why these solitary giants are so talkative. For the first time ever, National Geographic's Crittercam® records both video and underwater sound of blue whales calling. The results reveal that these whales may not be so solitary after all — the calls could be about companionship.
