A new study by Prof. Roee Diamant, head of the Underwater Acoustics and Navigation Lab in the Department of Marine Technologies, and Dr. Aviad Sheinin, head of the Apex Marine Predator Lab at the Morris Kahn Marine Research Station, found for the first time evidence, using artificial intelligence technology, that ship noise affects dolphins. The researchers, who monitored dolphins in the Gulf of Eilat, found that the dolphins communicate differently and change their vocal behavior when they encounter ship noise, and therefore they are definitely affected by ship noise.
