Passive acoustic monitoring on the eastern Nova Scotian shelf slope and in the Gully Marine Protected Area: Fs97-6/3236E-PDF

"This report examines the properties of passive acoustic data collected using JASCO Applied Sciences Autonomous Multichannel Acoustic Recorders (AMARs) at three deep water sites on the slope of the Nova Scotian Shelf extending, with short breaks, over a two-year period from mid October 2012 to late September 2014. One site was located in the large, ecologically and biologically diverse submarine canyon known as “The Gully”, itself situated within the wider Gully Marine Protected Area (MPA). The two remaining sites were located to the east of the MPA, between the Gully and Shortland Canyon and between Shortland and Haldimand Canyons respectively. We examine both the time and the spectral domain properties of the resultant datasets"--Introd., p. 1.
