Humpback Whale Sound Production Recorded at SanctSound Site CI01_03

Metadata Updated: June 16, 2023

This record represents manual detection of humpback whale sounds. Humpback presence was determined by manually scanning long-term spectral averages (LTSAs) in the Triton MATLAB software package. Acoustic files were decimated to a sample rate of 4 kHz before generating 5 s, 1 Hz LTSAs. The LTSA was scanned by a trained analyst in hourly bins for visual evidence of song and non-song humpback vocalizations. Detections were aurally confirmed. These data were recorded at SanctSound Site CI01_03 between August 14, 2019 and October 08, 2019.
