The NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC) Marine Mammal and Turtle and Division’s (MMTD) California Current Marine Assessment Program (CMAP) conducts cetacean population assessments using a variety of tools, including passive acoustic monitoring (PAM). Drifting acoustic buoys are valuable tools for marine mammal population assessment as well as soundscape monitoring of the marine habitat. These applications require a high level of competence in detection, classification, and localization (DCL), expertise in assessing population level metrics using PAM data. SWFSC will be collecting PAM data from drifting acoustic buoys in the California Current to study the soundscape and assess marine mammal populations. As part of this proje
