This is a 30-second mp3 audio clip of a whale "blowing." What do we mean when we say a whale "blows?" While a whale is holding its breath, air is compressed in its chest. Upon reaching the surface, the air is exhaled through the whale's blowholes. The exhaled air expands, causing the temperature to decrease, thereby condensing into water vapor. This puff of white vapor is quite visible and can often reach heights of 20 feet. In concert with the blow is the sound of rushing air that can be heard up to 800 feet away.More information about whales can be found at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NOAA is the agency that oversees the management of whales, dolphins and porpoises - also known as cetaceans.
