Autonomous Real-time Marine Mammal Detections

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution


New York Bight Buoy NW


Study objectives

A DMON buoy was deployed outside New York Harbor on May 25, 2021 to monitor the presence of baleen whales in near real time by automatically detecting and identifying their calls. The New York Bight is used for shipping, fishing, and wind farm development, yet the impacts of these activities on whales is poorly understood. The buoy will help to improve monitoring and conservation efforts for whales by providing scientists, managers, and the public with near real-time information on whale presence.
