Acoustic Characterization of Mediterranean Coastal Ecosystems


It's online… CALME, the sound network of the Mediterranean coast, on

The objectives of CALME are:

  1. via the RMC Water Agency, to contribute to the EU Water Framework Directive and the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive
  2. to measure and map ambient noise
  3. to interpret the acoustic data in terms of acoustic features, their nature (biological, anthropogenic, abiotic) and spatio-temporal variations
  4. to estimate noise impact and environmental status

The sound network consists of multiple long-term fixed recording stations, temporary deployments along the entire coast and glider-based recordings
