Range and depth estimation of bowhead whale calls in the Arctic using a single hydrophone

2014 IEEE Sensor Systems for a Changing Ocean (SSCO)., 2014

Bowhead whales generate low-frequency vocalizations in shallow-water Arctic environments. The propagation of these sounds is adequately described by normal mode theory. Indeed, at low-frequency the environment acts as a dispersive waveguide. The propagated signal can be modeled by a sum of normal modes, and the source position can be inferred from the different modal arrivals. However, this requires to estimate ...

  • Range and depth estimation of bowhead whale calls in the Arctic using a single hydrophone

    Bowhead whales generate low-frequency vocalizations in shallow-water Arctic environments. The propagation of these sounds is adequately described by normal mode theory. Indeed, at low-frequency the environment acts as a dispersive waveguide. The propagated signal can be modeled by a sum of normal modes, and the source position can be inferred from the different modal arrivals. However, this requires to estimate the modes from the received signal. Traditionally, modal arrivals are separated using synchronized hydrophone arrays. Here a nonlinear signal processing method called warping is used to filter the modes on just a single hydrophone. Once modes are filtered, the source depth and range can be estimated using classical Matched Mode Processing. This methodology is illustrated on an experimental bowhead whale vocalization recorded in the Beaufort Sea. Because seabed properties are not well known, it is necessary to jointly perform source localization and geacoustic inversion.

  • Study of insect-based flying microrobots

    A rough analysis of the scale effect as applied to a flying insect shows that the wing flapping frequency is inversely proportional to the square root of the size. The first two of the areas is used to design three simple structures. Aerodynamic calculations are made on the simplest structure. It is found that with a 0.5-mm chord, a 1-mm wing length and a 3- mu m thickness, it can generate 4.47*10/sup -7/ N of force, while its weight is 6.76*10/sup -8/ N, proving the feasibility of microrobot flight. Three large-scale models of flying microrobots are made with flapping frequencies in the range of 20 Hz. The influence of the flapping movement upon the whole structure is investigated.<<ETX>>

  • Prototype design and implementation for urban area in-car navigation system

    This paper introduces the its-car navigation system prototype we developed under the context of Singapore. In the system, integrated GPS/DR is used for continuous vehicle positioning. A digital road network map database is built for the whole Singapore. The database is designed to support map matching, route determination, and route guidance functions. The prototype system demonstrates GPS positioning of the vehicle in real-time, tracking the vehicle onto a digital map with fix updates every one or two seconds. With the map matched vehicle location on the map, voice and/or text guidance is provide to the driver. The vehicle position can also be transferred to control center through communication data link for the purpose of fleet management.

  • The energetic resources of Ungava Bay and its hinterland

    Since energy has taken a new importance recently, we have to undertake a closer study of its availability and cost. In this paper will evaluate the energy present in the tide of Ungava Bay and in the rivers emptying into it; we will consider not only the amount energy present in that area but also the possibility of making it available at the moment it is needed.

  • Whale Rover for Bio-Logging

    Bio-logging is a technique using data loggers attached to the bodies of animals to conduct ecological surveys. It is applied to sperm whales and provides valuable information about their diving depth, swimming velocity, and other habits. Zoologists are trying to capture video data of preying sperm whales, as no one has yet seen what happens when a sperm whale eats a giant squid. Currently, it is only possible to put a data logger on the back of a sperm whale. It is not yet possible to take a video of the mouth area of the sperm whale from the back because of the lack of visibility in deep ocean water. To solve this problem, we are introducing the “Whale Rover” which has the ability to move along the surface of the sperm whale using robotic technology. In addition, we apply the Environment-Driven concept proposed in our previous work. The whale rover is driven by the flow of water caused by the swimming motion of the whale. No batteries or CPUs are required for the transport system. In this study, a prototype is designed and developed. The feasibility of the prototype is confirmed by underwater experiments.

  • Up close and personal: recording humpback whale song at close ranges (10-50m)

    Summary form only given. Male humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) produce long, complex vocalizations consisting of a hierarchically-structured sequence of distinctive broadband 'units', each of a few seconds' duration. The function of this 'song' remains unclear. Singers are often observed in a stationary position with their body inclined downwards while vocalizing for about 10-12 minutes. The posture is suggestive of the singer attempting to optimize song propagation, but without calibrated measurements of the sound speed profile, source characteristics, range and orientation to the singer at close range, such ideas are difficult to test. Previous recordings have been made at considerable distance, where absorption, multipath and other propagation effects are imposed on the signal and the orientation to the singer is unknown. Prior recordings are also usually of low bandwidth. Recent work, however, has suggested that, close to the singer, song units may contain significant energy up to 20 kHz. The Acoustic Research Laboratory, Tropical Marine Science Institute at the National University of Singapore in collaboration with the Kewalo Basin Marine Mammal Laboratory of the University of Hawaii have deployed two types of acoustic recording systems in close proximity to singers in addition to CTD casts taken by the US Geological Survey. The first acoustic system is a digital video camera in an underwater housing with built-in hydrophone, recording at 44.1 kSa/s and operated by rebreather divers who are able to simultaneously ascertain both orientation and range to the singer using an ultrasonic depthsounder. The second is a custom-built self-contained high-frequency system with four hydrophones in an array that recorded at 250 kSa/s per channel. Both systems provide extremely high signal-to-noise ratio (typically 60 dB) calibrated recordings without propagation artifacts. Individual song units have been analyzed for power spectral density. Results indicate that most of the energy is located below 5 kHz with occasional harmonics up to 8 kHz. Individual units from a 6-minute sequence of 134 units were classified into 12 types with four classes containing 80% of the units. Comparisons of the power spectral densities within and across the four most common classes were conducted. Variations within classes were found to be within 7 dB when normalized for total power. Differences between the classes were small (up to 5dB) in the range of 500-1800 Hz and larger (up to 14dB) in the range from 1800-3500 Hz. The high- frequency recording system provides independent verification within the overlapping frequency range of both systems as well as information about the frequency content above 22 kHz up to 120 kHz.

  • Automatic detection and classification of marine mammal tonal calls

    Marine mammal tonal vocalizations are studied to help marine biologists get a better knowledge of their behavioral context. The vocalizations are often analyzed by characterization of the frequency contours. An automated frequency contour extraction method extended by image-based technique is proposed. The spectrogram is first de-noised and then two binary images are derived with a low threshold and a high threshold, respectively. Candidate contours can be regionally searched on the low threshold intensity image. The final output is confirmed by choosing the one with the nearest distance to the seed points on the high thresholding image. After obtaining the frequency contour, time- frequency parameters (TFPs) can be extracted for classification. The performance of the detection method has been tested by a set of recordings with the results well resolved especially for contours with sharp slopes. Classification results with TFPs achieved a mean accuracy over 92% for four species.
