Abstract:

WORKSHOP PRESENTATION The objective of the DCL workshop is to improve general understanding of methods to detect, classify, locate, track and monitor marine mammals in their environment. After three workshops dedicated to individual species, this fourth workshop is focused on a more complex issue the analysis of real-world complex acoustic scenes and the use of the context for identifying acoustic components of interest. A set of underwater recordings was made available online to encourage researchers to work on a common dataset, to focus on the same problems, to find original solutions, and to present and compare them at the workshop. Researchers working on their own datasets are welcome as well. The workshop is introduced by two lectures. The DE workshop brings together researchers working on estimating absolute density or abundance of marine mammal populations using passive acoustics. The workshop is introduced by a tutorial overview of the topic, followed by presentations showcasing relevant research.
