The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution digital ocean bottom hydrophone instrument : technical report
MetadataShow full item record
This report describes the design and capabilities of a new ocean bottom hydrophone instrument. The instrument is microprocessor controlled and records digitally on a commercially available cartridge tape recorder with a formatted capacity of 16.7 megabytes. It can operate at sampling intervals between 80 and 8500 Hz and has a dynamic range of 120dB. Both the hardware and software are designed to provide the maximum flexibility in operation allowing either preprogrammed or event detect operation for either short deployment high sampling rate experiments or extended deployment low data rate applications. The microprocessor and recording electronics are capable of handling four data channels and thus the existing recording package is suitable for the ocean bottom seismometer application (or similar} with little or no modification.

Array data acquisition with wireless LAN telemetry as applied to shallow water tomography in the Barents Sea von der Heydt, Keith; Kemp, John N.; Lynch, James F.; Miller, J.; Chiu, Ching-Sang (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-12)This report describes the application of a new technique of digital radio telemetry, based on a recently available wireless Local Area Network Ethernet adapter, to the need for realtime transmission of data from a vertical ...
Watkins, William A.; Schevill, William E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1971-10)This report describes a non-rigid, floating, four-hydrophone array that can give accurate three-dimensional locations for certain underwater sound sources, particularly for those that are close. For more distant sounds, ...
Estimating cetacean population density using fixed passive acoustic sensors : an example with Blainville's beaked whales Marques, Tiago A.; Thomas, Len; Ward, Jessica; DiMarzio, Nancy A.; Tyack, Peter L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2009-04)Methods are developed for estimating the size/density of cetacean populations using data from a set of fixed passive acoustic sensors. The methods convert the number of detected acoustic cues into animal density by accounting ...
