Extraction of vessel acoustic source levels and total sound exposure levels from passive acoustic recordings on the eastern Nova Scotian shelf slope and in the Gully Marine Protected Area: Fs97-6/3237E-PDF

"This report analyzes noise radiated from individual vessels as monitored at three deep water (~1500 m) sites off Nova Scotia. Data were recorded using JASCO Autonomous Multichannel Acoustic Recorders (AMAR) in May and June 2013. Station “MidGul” was located in the Gully canyon while stations “GulSho” and “ShoHald” were located further east on the Scotian Slope between the Gully and Shortland Canyon and between Shortland and Haldimand canyons respectively. The present report is a companion document to Cochrane and Moors-Murphy (2017); the primary report explored the fundamental characteristics of the complete broadband passive acoustic dataset extending from September 2012 to September 2014 at the above three sites. In-depth treatment of recorded vessel noise was deemed to warrant a separate document. Particulars pertaining to station locations, mooring geometries, AMAR properties, and the detailed acoustic character of the datasets are provided in the primary report"--Introd., p. 1.
