Autonomous Real-time Marine Mammal Detections
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Laurentian Channel, Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada, April 2022
A Teledyne Webb Research Slocum G3s glider equipped with passive acoustic listening device (DMON/LFDCS) was deployed in the Laurentian Channel region of the Gulf of St. Lawrence (GoSL) for a multi-month mission with an extended lithium primary battery pack. The purpose of this mission is to monitor for North Atlantic right whales and use right whale acoustic detections to trigger dynamic management in Dynamic Shipping Zones C/E of the Laurentian Channel Traffic Separation Scheme.
