Bioacoustics

 

  • Animal Bioacoustics – site maintained by members of the Acoustical Society of America
  • Aquatic Acoustic Archive – a resource library containing searchable references to publications on Underwater Acoustics, Ambient Noise, Anthropogenic Noise, Sounds Made by Marine Animals and Noise Effects on Marine Animals. In addition, this site also contains metadata on underwater acoustic data, and links to software and hardware tools
  • Voices in the sea – A cool pop-science whale sounds exhibit
  • Discovery of sounds in the sea – a large number of resources regarding sound in the oceans
  • Aquatic Acoustic Archive – a resource library containing searchable references to publications on Underwater Acoustics, Ambient Noise, Anthroprogenic Noise, Sounds Made by Marine Animals and Noise Effects on Marine Animals
  • Wildlife Sound Recording Society – the Society fosters developing recording skills and techniques as well as promoting the study of bioacoustics. Members of WSRS benefit from learning about how to go about recording wildlife sounds, where to go, what equipment to use, what to do with the sounds that have been captured, as well as being alerted to some of the pit-falls to avoid
  • AcousticEcology.org provides access to news, academic research, public policy advocates, and articles and essays about sound and listening.
  • LIDO (Listening to the Deep Ocean environment) proposes to establish a first nucleus of a regional network of multidisciplinary seafloor observatory.
  • The Whale Song ProjectWhalesong is a gateway for educational and scientific study of sounds and activities of whales and other marine life. The Whalesong site feeds continuous live audio from a hydrophone (underwater microphone) in the Pacific Ocean near Maui, Hawai’i whenever the hydrophone system is active.
  • TED talk: Peter Tyack: The intriguing sound of marine mammals – DECAF’s member Peter Tyack talks about  underwater sound. He explains the amazing ways whales use sound and song to communicate across hundreds of miles of ocean.

  • Vents program, Ocean Sound- The Acoustic Monitoring Project of the VENTS Program has performed continuous monitoring of ocean noise since August, 1991 using the U.S. Navy SOund SUrveillance System (SOSUS) network and autonomous underwater hydrophones.
  • Orcasound – a network of hydrophones in the Salish sea, of the west coast of the northern US/southern Canada

Sources of cetacean data

 

Software for sound analysis

  • PAMGUARD – cetacean passive acoustic monitoring software
  • Raven Pro – an interactive sound analysis programme intended for bioacoustics research
  • XBAT – XBAT is an extensible sound analysis application and MATLAB platform for developing sound analysis tools. It is open-source, licensed under the GPL
  • Canary 1.2.4: The Cornell Bioacoustics Workstation
