North Atlantic Right Whale Sound Production Recorded at SanctSound Site SB02_05

Metadata Updated: June 16, 2023

This record represents North Atlantic right whale (NARW) 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 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_05 between August 02, 2019 and October 05, 2019.
