Offshore wildlife protection: acoustic monitoring and AI detection

Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) technology has been used by offshore wind farms for more than a decade to monitor underwater noise. Underwater environments, despite their apparent inaccessibility, are territories of life, and exceptional scientific wealth. They are full of acoustic events that offer a window on crucial phenomena, such as seismic movements, behaviour of marine species, and anthropogenic activities in the abyssal depths. The precise detection, localization and classification of these underwater acoustic events represent essential challenges for oceanography research, underwater exploration and for the management of marine resources.
