Title: Tethys Acoustic Metadata Database
Short Name: Tethys
Status: Completed
Abstract:

The Tethys database houses the metadata associated with the acoustic data collection efforts by the Passive Acoustic Group. These metadata include dates, locations and sampling rate, among other things.

The database platform itself was developed by colleagues at San Diego State University, and is freely available and open source. See citation details for website link.

Purpose:

Database to house metadata associated with all NEFSC passive acoustic deployments.

Other Citation Details:

To read about the Tethys database project , see: http://tethys.sdsu.edu/

Supplemental Information:

Some of these data will be accessible through NCEI.

The locations and timeframes of many of our fixed recorder deployments are also easily accessible through our website:
