... it through baleen plates. However, as engulfment capacity increases with body length (engulfment volume∝body length 3.57 ), the surface area of the baleen filter does not increase proportionally (baleen area∝body length 1.82 ), and thus the filtration time of larger rorquals predictably increases...

... filtration far from the filter base in the two most flexible arrays( E ∼1, 8), producing leakiness values that were effectively zero for the most distal measurement planes( Fig. 6D,E ). Further examination of planar leakiness revealed a subtler effect of cylinder bending that was independent of changes...

...Alexander J. Werth SUMMARY Anatomical and behavioral analyses suggest that the filtration mechanism of bowhead and right whales (Balaenidae) is driven by hydrodynamic as well as ram hydraulic pressures. Complementary models were devised to investigate biomechanical aspects of water flow...
