Welcome to the website for the Nowacek lab, part of the Marine Conservation Ecology group at the Duke Marine Lab.  Our lab combines research in marine mammal bioacoustics and behavioral ecology with the development of new tools for oceanographic research.  Dr. Nowacek holds joint appointments in the Nicholas School of the Environment and the Pratt School of Engineering, and through this unique combination we work in the novel area of Marine Conservation Technology.
