Details of Underwater sound/noise monitoring


Dataset identification

Title of datasetUnderwater sound/noise monitoring
Narrative summary of datasetUnderwater noise monitoring was performed for two weeks in front of the town of Split, which is the third-largest passenger port in the Mediterranean. Data was collected by SonoVault self-recording instrument mounted above the sea bottom close to the passenger port. Sound pressure levels were averaged at the one hour intervals
Summary of processing methodologyRaw data of SPL (Sound Pressure level) was sampled with 48KHz, and by processing produced a 1/3 octave spectrum for every one hour period of SPL (dB re 1micrpPa)
