Bats: Studying Noises in the Night
by Matthew Heavner

Matthew Heavner, Assistant Professor, talks about his long term project pursuing bioacoustical monitoring of bat species in Southeast Alaska. The objective of his research is to build and field test a better bat detector using small, low power computers.

Normally, the high-frequency sounds being produced by echolocating bats is inaudible to humans. But using special microphones and recording equipment, researchers have been able to detect and record these sonic pulses, though studies have been limited by brief observation periods and sensor limitations.
