Our long-range objective is to understand the oceanographic processes that influence the distribution of whales in the ocean. In support of this objective we seek to develop a fully-integrated autonomous acoustic observing system capable of detecting and classifying a wide range of marine mammal vocalizations from blue whales to beaked whales 10 Hz - 100 kHz with proven performance. This work will ultimately improve our ability to predict whale distribution and bolster efforts to mitigate human impacts on marine mammals.
