Abstract:

The long-term goals of this research effort are to improve the Navy s passive underwater acoustic monitoring of marine mammal populations. A major focus in this project is on further enhancing the ability to estimate environmentally-calibrated calling density calls per unit area per unit time obtained from raw detections of calls in underwater acoustic recordings. The efforts in this program also will support the Ph.D. research of a graduate student in marine bioacoustics and ocean acoustics at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
