North Atlantic Right Whale Sound Production Recorded at SanctSound Site SB02_02

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This record represents north atlantic right whale sound production detected from raw passive acoustic data. The Low Frequency Detection and Classification System (LFDCS) call library for right whale low-frequency modulated upsweep (upcall) was used for the data. All North Atlantic Right Whale (NARW) upcall detections with a Mahalanobis distance less than or equal to 3.0 were manually screened due to variability in NARW upcalls and overlap with other species’ vocalizations, such as upsweeps produced by humpback whales. A given day was marked as having NARWs present if three or more true upcall detections. These data were recorded at SanctSound site SB02_02 between January 28, 2019 and April 2, 2019.
