UNH underwater mapping center skeptical of link to whale strandings


The body of a stranded pilot whale is seen in shallow waters in the coastal region of Bustamante Bay in the Argentine Patagonian province of Chubut. 40 whales beached themselves over a single weekend. A similar occurrence involving 400 pilot whales happened in the same area in 1991. (Reuters)

Another skeptic is Larry Mayer, a professor at the University of New Hampshire's Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping. "From my reading of that report, it's not clear how they could have come to that conclusion," Mayer said. "Any of the other possible conclusions are just as likely."
