Unusual Mortality Event -- Whales -- Another UME

https://www.livescience.com/63949-unprecedented-dead-whales-scotland-ireland.html


Simon Berrow, a marine biologist who heads the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG), a conservation NGO, told LiveScience that 30 dead beaked whales had washed up on Ireland's west coast since Aug. 4.

Around 26 of the carcasses were Cuvier's beaked whales, a species that lives mainly in the deep ocean, while the rest were either Sowerby's beaked or northern bottlenose whales.

If 30 washed up they think up to 1000 may have died.

Marine mammal scientists say the presence of the washed-up whales suggests an "unusual mortality event," or UME, that could have killed up to 1,000 Cuvier'sbeaked whales in the North Atlantic Ocean in recent months.

The dive to almost 10,000 feet!   Amazing whales.   So no one says this, but it is quite obvious...they must use radar to echo locate their prey (squids)

What would be the interaction between Whale radar and military radar?
