Abstract:

Passive acoustic monitoring from two autonomous surface vehicles, ASV Global C-Enduro and C-Worker models, was conducted from June 23- July 2, 2015. The C-Enduro towed a 55 meter, two-element array and the C-Worker towed a 220 meter, two-element array during survey efforts. Acoustic data was recorded while the vehicles were either under tow by the R/V Pelican or under autonomous power. Raw data was collected at 500 kHz, in 16-bit wav-format files. Concurrent CTD and GPS data collected by the ASVs during acoustic surveys are also included.

Purpose:

Acoustic data was collected using autonomous surface vehicles towing a two element hydrophone array to determine whale and dolphin presence during buoy deployments and visual surveys. Real-time analysis was performed through Pamguard in order to localize calling animals to assist with visual detection at the surface. Together, raw and analyzed data, will be used to compare ability of detection between three passive acoustic monitoring platforms.
