Marine Species Monitoring

Passive Acoustic Monitoring Report for the Jacksonville Range Complex Available

Posted on April 26, 2013

Passive acoustic monitoring was conducted at two sites in the US Navy’s Jacksonville Range Complex during August 2010 – July 2011. These sites are located 50 and 61 nm east of the Florida coastline on the shelf and shelf break at water depths of 40 m – 90 m. Acoustic data collected at these sites provide information on the presence of marine mammals and anthropogenic sound sources. High-frequency Acoustic Recording Packages (HARPs) documented sounds between 10 Hz and 100 kHz with recording cycles of 5 minutes every 15 minutes. The data were divided into three frequency bands and data analysis was conducted with analyst scans of long-term spectral averages and spectrograms.
