Title: 1- HARPs of the Pacific Islands Region
Status: In Work
Abstract:

This dataset contains information on acoustic recordings of cetaceans collected from areas within the Pacific Islands Region since 2006. In collaboration with researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the PIFSC EOD, the Cetacean Research Program (CRP) currently uses bottom-mounted data recorders called High-frequency Acoustic Recording Package or HARPs - to conduct passive acoustic monitoring studies. The HARP dataloggers are moored to the sea bottom and remain there for an extended period of time (e.g., 6 mos. to 1 yr.).

Purpose:

HARP recordings provide information on seasonal and daily patterns of cetacean occurrence in a specific area.

Notes:

See the specific HARP location datasets for more detailed information.

Data Quality

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Raw data (.hrp) are checked when initially copied from the drives to determine the total recording duration and assess errors in recording. Raw data are converted to .wav files that are checked during analyses of datasets.

Data Management

Have Resources for Management of these Data Been Identified?: No
Approximate Percentage of Budget for these Data Devoted to Data Management: Unknown
Do these Data Comply with the Data Access Directive?: Yes
Is Access to the Data Limited Based on an Approved Waiver?: Yes
If Distributor (Data Hosting Service) is Needed, Please Indicate: Data hosting services are needed
Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Dissemination: n/a
If Delay is Longer than Latency of Automated Processing, Indicate Under What Authority Data Access is Delayed:

Approved waiver - acoustic data

Actual or Planned Long-Term Data Archive Location: To Be Determined
If To Be Determined, Unable to Archive, or No Archiving Intended, Explain:

Data are currently archived at the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC) and Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO)

Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Archiving: 1 mo. - 1 yr.
How Will the Data Be Protected from Accidental or Malicious Modification or Deletion Prior to Receipt by the Archive?:

Data are backed up to multiple hard drives and stored in secure locations at PIFSC and SIO.

Lineage

Lineage Statement:

The HARP dataloggers are moored to the sea bottom and remain there for an extended period of time (e.g., 6 mos. to 1 yr.). Passive acoustic data are collected by a single omni-directional hydrophone and recorded on hard drives as (.hrp) . After the data loggers are retrieved the acoustic data are converted to .wav files.
