Independent researchers working in coordination with the Navy ships USS Dewey (DDG 105) and USS Cape St. George (CG 71) conducted ground-breaking marine mammal behavioral response studies (BRSs) on the Navy’s Southern California Offshore Range in July.

The studies occured July 8-12 with the destroyer Dewey and July 28-30 with the cruiser Cape St. George. During the studies, scientists attached data tags to a total of six marine mammals and tracked the animals’ movements and behavior in response to sonar signals from the ships
