Humpback Whale Sound Production Recorded at SanctSound Site SB03_12

Metadata Updated: June 16, 2023

This record represents humpback whale sound production detected from raw passive acoustic data. The Low Frequency Detection and Classification System (LFDCS) call library for humpback whales contains 9 call types with exemplars taken from song notes spanning 2006-2017 (except 2007). All humpback whale detections with a MD of 3.0 or less were manually screened for the daily presence of true humpback whale vocalizations. A day was then marked as present for humpback whales if one true detection was found within at least three humpback whale vocalizations, occurring over a 10 min window. The 10 min window was deemed sufficient to clearly distinguish putative humpback whale vocalizations from those of other species.These data were recorded at SanctSound Site SB03_12 between September 17, 2020 and November 22, 2020.
