The equipment for measuring the sound began with a hydrophone and possibly
analyzed through a sound spectrum oscilator or something similar. Joseph R.
Olson at Cetacean Research Technology <> would
have more information on that, and I think he may have been involved in the
event you speak of.

Jim Nolman is involved in that sort of thing, and I think he was also part
of that program. I don't have Jim's address at hand, but his organization
is Interspecies Communication and probably has a web site you could find
with a simple search. Otherwise, I suspect Joe Olson may have Jim's address.

I hope this helps.
