At the Dolphin Discovery Center in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico, there’s been a major breakthrough in reproducing how dolphins “see” using their sense of sonar.
An echolocation beam transmitted by a dolphin was recorded of a submerged man. The resulting image was faint but using enhancement techniques, key features of the man and the surrounding background were revealed. The submerged man was Jim McDonough and the female research dolphin, Amaya was tasked to echolocate towards the man.
