A software to process underwater sound databases

Objectives
The objective of BIOSOUND is to develop a set of algorithms and to incorporate them into a software for underwater sound database processing. We address the detection, classification, localization and census of all the sounds contributing to marine soundscapes: biogenic, anthropogenic and geophonic underwater sounds. BIOSOUND is suitable to process large databases (from days to years).
Highlights
  • The right balance between theoretical signal processing development and efficiency of real data processing
  • Publication of the BIOSOUND algorithms
  • Feedback thanks to the application on real data and large databases
  • Outputs, suitable for ecological uses and applications
