Preliminary findings. (A) Mean number of detections vs. mean wind speed (knots) per 30 min interval for two tags located 300 m from a receiver in Dry Tortugas National Park, FL. Differences between day (open circles, n = 51) and night (closed circles, n = 61) detection patterns are illustrated, suggesting additional ambient noise factor at night contributing to reduced detection rates at high wind speeds. (B) Detection rate relative to distance from receiver for a tag carried by a diver within rugose reef habitats between receivers.
