Dolphin acoustic survey

Dolphin survey

Dolphin survey data

Presence/absence data of toothed whales or dolphins along the Mediterranean coast of Israel. Acoustic receivers (C-pod/F) were moored in the north ( Nahariya that was later relocated to Achziv), center (Dor & Poleg), and south (Ashkelon) regions, at water depths of 20m that was later relocated to 45m, 45m & 20m, and 27m, respectively. In addition, both fish farms in Michmoret and Ashdod are been monitored as well in water depths of 36m and 80m, respectively. Presence is provided as detection positive minutes (DPM) and the total (unfiltered) number of clicks as null values. Minson indicates whether the C-pod was recording during the time of detection.
