Original provider: Claudio Fossati, University of Pavia Dataset credits: Claudio Fossati and Giulia Romè, CIBRA Center for Bioacoustics, University of Pavia Abstract: CIBRA Center for Bioacoustics, Univ. of Pavia, organizes research cruises in the Med sea since 1994. Visual and acoustic contacts (1994 - 2001) are available on OBIS-SEAMAP, while acoustic recordings are stored in our Sound library and available upon request. Purpose: Data were collected during cetacean research campaigns, acoustic software and hardware development campaigns. more

Supplemental information: Tracks of the cruises are coarse in June and Sept 1994, June 1995. From 1996 on, tracks are finer. Data from acoustic contacts are registered in a separate dataset "Acoustic detections from research cruises in the Med sea, 1994-2001".
