We employ Passive Acoustic Monitoring techniques to advance in the study of marine mammals and anthropogenic sounds. This is achieved by developing new acoustic instrumentation and signal processing algorithms to detect and characterise underwater acoustic events. Our goal is to improve the understanding of how anthropogenic sounds impacts on the marine biodiversity as well as to study the population abundance, seasonality and behaviour of marine mammals.
For this purpose, we combine traditional Passive Acoustic Monitoring techniques with recent advances in signal processing algorithms and representation techniques such as big data representations of events automatically obtained by means of deep learning.
