Unraveling the dynamics of ocean soundscapes 1920 1080 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

Univ. of Colorado, Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences  – United States of America (USA)

This project will result in innovative approaches for improved soundscape analysis, integration with other environmental data, and visualization.

The use of passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) has grown exponentially over the past decade. The resulting petabytes of acoustic data contain valuable information on how sound source contributors, such as animals, vary over time and space. Extracting and processing this information in a standardized approach that allows comparison across datasets in the context of ecosystem-based research management is a big data challenge. Data products will be shared in databases and on visualization platforms for various users.
