Autonomous Real-time Marine Mammal Detections

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution


Nomans Land Buoy


Study objectives

A DMON buoy was deployed near Nomans Land Island just off the southern Massachusetts coast to monitor the occurrence of endangered baleen whales near several Coast Guard gunnery ranges. The near real-time data from this buoy will help the Coast Guard minimize the impact of training exercises on baleen whales.

Principal Investigators: Sofie Van Parijs (NEFSC), Peter Corkeron (NEFSC), Tim Cole (NEFSC), and Mark Baumgartner (WHOI)

Analyst: Julianne Gurnee (NEFSC)

The WHOI DMON buoy was expertly prepared by Jeff Pietro and the WHOI Buoy Group and deployed by John Kemp from the R/V Neil Armstrong. Critical engineering support was provided by Leo-Paul Pelletier, Jim Partan, Keenan Ball, Tom Hurst and Steve Faluotico (WHOI). Support for the deployment and operation of the buoy is provided by the NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center. Support for the development and testing of the DMON/LFDCS was provided by the Office of Naval Research, and support for integration in the buoy 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).
