Autonomous Real-time Marine Mammal Detections
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Mount Desert Rock, Maine, Fall 2016
A Slocum G2 glider was deployed near Mount Desert Rock in the northern Gulf of Maine to evaluate the accuracy of DMON/LFDCS near-realtime acoustic detections using visual observations collected from the nearby Mount Desert Rock lighthouse.
Principal Investigators: Cara Hotchkin (NAVFAC Atlantic), Sofie Van Parijs (NEFSC), Peter Corkeron (NEFSC), and Mark Baumgartner (WHOI).

The Slocum glider was expertly prepared by Larry George (WHOI) and deployed by Sean Whelan (WHOI). Critical engineering support was provided by Keenan Ball, Jim Partan, and Tom Hurst (WHOI). Support for the deployment and operation of the glider is provided by the Department of Defense's Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) and the Navy's Living Marine Resources Program. Support for the development and testing of the DMON/LFDCS was provided by the Office of Naval Research, and additional support for integration and testing was provided by the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service Advanced Sampling Technologies Working Group in collaboration with the Northeast Fisheries Science Center's Passive Acoustics Research Group (leader: Sofie Van Parijs).
