Description
CIBRA Center for Bioacoustics, Univ. of Pavia, organizes research cruises in the Med sea since 1994. Visual and acoustic contacts (1994 - 2001) are available on OBIS-SEAMAP, while acoustic recordings are stored in our Sound library and available upon request. more

Data were collected during cetacean research campaigns, acoustic software and hardware development campaigns. Supplemental information: This is a subset of sperm whale detections from an acoustic detection dataset "Acoustic detections from research cruises in the Med sea, 1994-2001". Sperm whale detection records have an estimated group size while others do not. Effort tracklines are registered with "Acoustic detections from research cruises in the Med sea, 1994-2001". Data from visual contacts are registered in a separate dataset "Visual contacts from research cruises in the Med sea, 1994-2001".
