"That's a humpback whale singing in Glacier Bay, Alaska, Scientists are finding the oceans have been quieter as shipping traffic has fallen. Here's NPR's Lauren Summer. A lot of scientists have had to cancel their fieldwork this year, but not Christine Gabriel. She can work all alone in a boat on Glacier Bay. On a cool, rainy morning, she spots what she's looking for, and captures it on her smartphone. Yeah, they're about five whales working this one little area. Breathing when they're up. They're humpback whales. It looks to me like they might be feeding on some schools of fish. Gabriel is a wildlife biologist with Glacier Bay National Park. For 35 years, The park Service has been keeping track of the humpback population here. One of the groups is a mother and calf are seventh for the year, so that's really good news. Gabriel also keeps track of them below the surface. Down at the bottom of the bay. There's ah hydrophone continually recording sound contract all for miles underwater. A lot farther than a whale. Khun C and humpbacks make all sorts of calls. They coordinate, feeding or just stay in touch. There are other things in the water that makes noise to free pandemic. Boats and cruise ships were common in Glacier Bay, and Gabriel and her colleagues found that when ships are loud, the whales change their calls. Kind of the way we talk at a loud party. In order to communicate with each other. They might have to be close together, they might have to repeat themselves or they might have to wait for a quieter moment. But this year, things sound different. It's much quieter and just by listening to it, you can tell the cruise ships are gone. Bo tours are way down. The pandemic has kind of created this unexpected opportunity for science kind of a once in a lifetime. Chance to look at well communication behavior in its natural undisturbed form, and scientists are finding that elsewhere in the Pacific to the southern Resident killer whales are endangered Group of whales. David Barclay is an assistant professor at down House, a university. He measured ocean noise in the waters near Vancouver, where those endangered killer whales live. He found there was about half a cz much noise in April compared two months prior. Even my mom said, it's kind of obvious don't you think? Less ships? Less noise? I mean, duh, which is, you know, it's always hard when you get roasted by your mom, but it matters for killer whales because they need sound to hunt through Echo location. Just like a bat. Does ship sound can interfere with that, and it can cause chronic stress, But the quiet is likely a temporary thing, says Michael Jazzy, who works on marine mammals at the Natural Resources Defense Council. Right now, there may be some break, but we have to look forward to what happens afterwards. Jazzy says the Port of Vancouver is a good example of where something is being done about ocean noise. Ships get a discount on their fees if they're retrofitted to be quieter or simply slowdown, which reduces noise. That's just in one place. You know, Shipping is a global industry and we're not seeing that kind of global commitment to change. Still, jazz needs hope is that what scientists.

"What we know is that animals change their behavior when the ocean gets noisy Michelle Forte is an acoustic ecologist at Cornell. Every summer she travels to Glacier Bay. To drop a hydrophone in the water was an in on what the whales are saying and study being affected by ship noise this year. Michelle was preparing for her annual trip to go. When the CO bid nineteen shutdowns were announced so Friday. The thirteenth was the last day that we were allowed to be in the lab at work before we had to start sheltering in place and with that also met from my perspective was that my summer field season was cancelled that the trip to Alaska I was meant to take to go and do work with these animals wasn't going to happen. The Lab Cornell would also need to close and so all the scientists gathered together for a final in-person meeting to try to plan out how everyone was going to keep their research going from home. Michelle mentioned that the summer crew season would probably not even happen this year in Alaska at which point another person at the meeting broke in with a question and one of my colleagues and friends looked at me and she asked me you know. Are you listening in other words? Even if she couldn't go to see the wheels person was she's still planning on listening to them. And I realized I wasn't and and all of a sudden my my personal sentimental brain turned off in my biologist brain. Turn back on and an immediate flurry to get hydrophones. In the water ensued. In that Moment Michelle realized that although her research trip had been cancelled the grown virus shutdown had created an incredible opportunity for the first time in decades. The ocean would be quiet for an entire summer. And so what that means for somebody like me. As researcher is that we have the opportunity to listen to undisturbed behavior for the first time. Usually Michelle relies on quiet periods in an individual day to try to understand how ship noise changes will behavior. I get excited. We have six or seven hours of silence in the ocean. I built an entire dissertation around the fact that Glacier Bay is one of the few areas in the world where you can predictably have moment's silence and now what we have is months of silence so act. This is unheard up right after that final meeting the lab. Michelle started calling people in Alaska. Who can help her out? I had to call my best friend because all of make your lives in her garage and could she blowups buoy for me and Tyson. Line for me. If I could put a hydrophone which she'd be willing to attach it to a shack will passed off to someone else to put it on Anchor. Who would then get it onto a boat and drop it in the ocean. Eventually with the help of lots of people in Alaska. They got hydrophones into the water. Michelle is now set to record. An entire summer of whale sounds in strangely quiet seas..

"A helicopter should do the same. Why can't they build build helicopters? I feel like if I agree. So we get get into the helicopter. First of all he passes out in that slows everything down way longer to get back to the helicopter because he has to walk and eventually he starts running again. But I'm just thinking the whole time I'm about to fly seven hours with this guy who just blacked out on on the trail but for me it was like what's more important just staying here you do. I want to stay here another night or risk my life to your home and I decided. Roll the dice with this guy and hope that he doesn't pass out. You've rolled the dice so many times with him that it seems like what's another tote you know yeah. We jumped up to the helicopter and we flew seven hundred miles yesterday and luckily he didn't pass out so it was. I mean those those highlights this or lowlights. Whatever you WANNA call them? Those were only the the major problems. So they weren't even like the hair-raising moments when we we realized that we had just enough fuel to get into a location or the moments where clouds moved in and blocked our visibility or a million leeann little things that were less than that but equally as stressful so when we touch ground last night. I can't even tell you. It felt great where there any moments of low stress because it sounds like this was just only a high stress mission. The stress was always there the fear of death constantly and I know there's probably a helicopter pilot out there listening laughing but for a guy who have you ever been on the back of a four wheeler with a friend and there's just this fear because you don't know in control. Yeah you're not in control your like this guy's going too fast but the honors. So I'm the guy on the back of the four wheeler the whole time just thinking what the hell what was going on. It's like don't kill US please. Yeah please don't die. So there were moments and those moments tend to be turbulence free moments in beautiful areas areas but even then like we way back into Glacier Bay National Park. And you're like nobody has probably been back here very few people if we crash here. It's like you're done but we would still be able to recover your body's eventually you think I don't think yeah and like five hundred years. When the glacier choose us up and SPITS US out into the Bay Torres to sit in a boat or yacht looking at the edge of the glacier and they just see my body dangling halfway out of pretty good I say five hundred years for the glacier to melt? Yeah yeah sign up. So let's say fifty years. Yeah you could see Danny's body being chewed up and spit out by the glacier and fifty years one hundred years my naked body. I've always Nathan scenarios. Glacier stripped my clothes at foot you was because of the paper so you would strip down because that's last trip with me a move not now.

In Search of the Canary Tree: The Story of a Scientist, a Cypress, and a Changing World

"This episode are human health, and our environmental health are deeply intertwined and each requires the other test to stay healthy. That's Lauren oaks. She's a scientist with the wildlife Conservation Society and Jordan professor in earth system science at Stanford University. He's also the author of the book in search of the canary Trie, the story of a scientist, the Cyprus and a changing world. Canary tree is the yellow cedar type of Cyprus that's native to coastal areas of north west North America. Another name for it is the Alaska Cyprus, it's being called the canary tree because it's the canary in the coal mine of an Alaska where oaks did her research in March Alaska, temperatures average, twenty degrees Fahrenheit above historical. Norms to talk about the book, I called oaks at our home in bozeman. Montana. Really enjoyed the book. I think you get into a lot of things that are really important that you don't see in a lot of scientific research. And so let's talk very briefly about how you decided to make this tree. Your study, focus, Sarah. So I say the puck it's true that I never thought I'd be someone spent your life studying a species and actually designed this pretty weird benign wanted them, and they were good reasons for it though. I generally was attracted to work in the north because warming there is a currying faster at faster rates than the averages across the planet. So in some ways, you can think about Alaska or the far far north as a looking last into the future in terms of what other of impacts we're going to see when it comes to climate change. So I spent a summer up there doing exploratory research where I really had no idea what the topic would be. I was interviewing scientists to were working in fisheries management or forest management, policymakers who were dressing things like coastal erosion on the far north coast were communities have to move inland and many other kinds of climate change impacts, whether it's watery sources or kinds of resources that we depend on anyways. I was hoping in that time that I would come across a topic at need really that was dented from the community where. Research could be relevant for current management. And where I could take a look at both the ecological in social impacts of of climate change. So I came from a program where we were trained scientists to bridge disciplines a lot of times in environmental problem solving were bringing together experts in in the room from different fields. So ecologists come together with the communists or policymakers, and we all kind of tend to speak different languages based on our training in disciplines. But the idea of this program is that if we train one person to speak, multiple languages into bridge across these disciplines that the new solutions could emerge. So from the beginning, I was always interested in you know, what are the ecological impacts of climate change in place. But then also how are people responding to those impacts? And I thought that you know, perhaps there could be lessons for myself in my own life for others other people in other parts of the planet by. I'm looking at those two factors and we'll get to the people part. But the decision to focus in on this one species was was really interesting. Yes out during that time, I came across Dr Paul Hennion who's a force pathologist at the United States forest service. He has since retired. But at the time we met he was about to publish a thirty year, synthesis, which was basically showing the link to climate change in terms of wire these trees dying, and it's kind of a complex pathway to death. But climate change plays a key role in that. And for me that was a really good jumping off point because I wasn't assigned this coming in trying to explain you know, why is climate change affecting the species how what are the vulnerabilities? You know, what's the likelihood of future events in in that kind of thing. I had a jumping off off point where we already know climate changes affecting the species, and that I could ask okay. Hey, what's what's happening to the rest of the forest community? And and how are people really affected by that as well? Looking at climate changes affect on the species as much as you are using the species as bellwether about what climate change will do everywhere. He actually I mean in some ways it's a story of loss. Right. We are losing this species in many places, but then there's also a story of re-growth, right it. So what comes in after the trees die in the same way? You know, how can people adopt alongside those ecological changes? And you do find that. As the yellow cedar goes away, the the western hemlock comes in. So there's there's loss there's gained there's a transition. It's happening. It's really interesting. But before we get to that. Let's talk about some of the realities of doing field research. It's incredibly strenuous and uncomfortable difficult. Yeah. It is a it. It was tough. It was tough. That's for sure I worked on the outer coast the southeast Alaska in the west coffee. Kobe wilderness and glacier bay national park, which are some of the most remote wilderness areas, we have in the country strikingly beautiful in also strikingly far from from civilization as you as you call it. But the forest where I work we're only acceptable by boat or plane, and I didn't wanna be. She schlepping back and forth. Both in terms of our time and the fossil fuels that we needed to get out to these sites. So basically figured out a way with a pretty awesome crew to set up a base camp. And we would spend two weeks at a time kayaking to random locations, and then hiking into forested sites where we would then measure the plants in the in
