passive acoustic monitoring of marine biodiversity

2018-04-23 Thread Lisa Munger
Dear Bioacoustics research community,

I am involved in drafting an invited manuscript for Frontiers in Marine
Science on the use of passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) as a tool for
monitoring marine biodiversity (see Frontiers topic announcement at
https://goo.gl/FMErBs). My co-authors are Dr. Linda Weilgart (Dalhousie
University), Dr. Aran Mooney and Dr. Ashlee Lillis (both at Woods Hole
Oceanographic Institution).

As part of our data collection for the manuscript, we have designed a
survey for researchers and experts in this field (link to survey below).
Our goals are to 1) summarize where we are now in this area of research,
including current technologies and methodologies in use, current
limitations/challenges, etc. and 2) discuss ways forward for PAM to be
integrated into global ocean observing networks.

Survey link:  https://goo.gl/forms/8wkCKO6stUQ83odk1

If you work in PAM of marine biodiversity, we would greatly appreciate your
time and effort in responding to this survey by the end of this month (30
April 2018). Please share with colleagues as appropriate.

Sincerely,
Lisa, Lindy, Aran, and Ashlee

Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) devices

2013-09-15 Thread Irene Vollmy
Dear list members

Peter Dobbins, Ultra Electronics and I, Irene Voellmy, University of
Bristol, are currently conducting a survey to evaluate current and future
requirements for Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) devices for research
(e.g. aquatic animals, acoustic environments), conservation and
anthropogenic noise emission monitoring purposes. This survey is conducted
as part of an ongoing study investigating the current state of the art in
PAM systems. In this survey, we particularly investigate whether and where
users of PAM systems locate gaps in available devices and how further
developments of the techniques could meet these requirements.

If you are a user of PAM systems, we would be grateful if you could take
part in this survey and complete the questionnaire on:
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/J355HDV

The deadline for completed questionnaires is *30 September 2013*.

The survey should not take more than 15 minutes and your information will
only be used for statistical purposes. Your name and contact details will
not be linked to your answers and will not be conveyed to third parties.

Thank you very much for your help and your time,

Irene Voellmy and Peter Dobbins

 Bio-Waves, Inc., a small marine bio-acoustic research company located in
southern California, is developing a Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM)
training course.  This course will combine theoretical instruction with
hands-on demonstration to give participants a working knowledge of towed
array hardware, software, data collection and data management.  In order to
best tailor this course to the needs of the community, we have prepared a
brief (9 question) survey and would be most grateful for responses from
those interested.   To access the survey, please go to
https://eyhsandiego.wufoo.com/forms/pam-training-course-questionnaire/

 We plan to offer our first PAM training course during early fall 2011.  If
you have any questions or would like more information, please don't hesitate
to contact Liz Ferguson (efergu...@bio-waves.net) or Julie Oswald (

paper on fixed passive acoustic monitoring

2008-01-11 Thread Dave Mellinger

The following paper has just been published:

Mellinger, D.K., K.M. Stafford, S.E. Moore, R.P. Dziak, and H. Matsumoto. 2007. 
An overview of fixed passive acoustic observation methods for cetaceans. 
Oceanography 20(4):36-45.

Articles in Oceanography do not have abstracts, but part of the Introduction 
says this:

  In this article, we describe the methodology of fixed passive
  acoustic observations, including instrumentation, software for
  detection of vocalizations, statistical methods, and
  interpretation of results, and then provide an example of the
  results from a fixed passive acoustic survey of Bransfield Strait,
  Antarctica.
