NOAA NEFSC North Atlantic Right Whale Acoustic Data and Annotations

May 19, 2023

These datasets are a compilation of acoustic data and associated annotation logs, collected in the Western North Atlantic Ocean, including the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.

These two datasets were manually annotated for the presence of North Atlantic right whale upcalls.  The first dataset was originally part of the 2013 DCLDE (Detection, Classification, Localization, and Density Estimation) conference datasets. It was recently re-analyzed so all log files were from the same site (site 10, corresponding to channel 10 in multichannel data files) for the entire data week. An additional week of data was annotated from multiple locations and dates, all within the Western North Atlantic Ocean.  Each day of data for both datasets was manually browsed in Raven 1.5, and all North Atlantic right whale upcalls were logged (for multichannel data, only one channel was analyzed and logged: the channel logged is indicated in the corresponding csv file). In the "Detection_Confidence" field, a definite upcall is marked as "Detected"; Possible or unknown detections ( i.e. a call could not be definitely attributed to a North Atlantic right whale), are marked as "Possibly_Detected".  Acoustic data and analysis provided by NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center's Passive Acoustic Research group; upcall logs annotated by Nicole Pegg.
