Dolphin Echo-Location Clicks

 This sample cuts off sharply at 3500 Hz yet the clicks are still very audible in the sample.  Echo-location clicks vary widely in frequency with lower frequency clicks being used for long range detection of schooling fish - and perhaps for some form of communications.  The higher frequency clicks are used to pick up individual targets (fish) at close range.  Lower frequencies (in the range that can be heard with the DE500 connected to a cellular phone) propagate longer distances in water and are more useful for detecting the presence of dolphins.

Amplitude of echolocation clicks

 This chart shows the amplitude of the click pulse train. It shows three distinct pulse repetition rates.  At first, the individual pulses are widely separated indicating a long range search.  The second burst shows closer spaced pulses for medium range searching and finally the last train shows closely spaced pulses for nearby targets.

Frequency analysis of the click train shows them very audible in a 3500 Hz bandwidth.

The frequency analysis of the sound shows that the effective bandwidth is only about 3500 Hz.  But, this still provides enough bandwidth the hear and measure the echolocation pulse trains.


More samples - all using transmission band- widths of 3500 Hz or less!
