Research/Observation Title

Hydro acoustic sound data from boats in Inglefield Bredning and Bowdoin fjords in Greenland

Science Summary (common)

Acoustic data (.wav) recorded by 2 hydrophones suspended from boats in Inglefield Bredning and Bowdoin fjords (Baffin Bay, NW Greenland, Denmark) in July 2019 for soundscape documentation of whale vocalizations and environmental sources. First set-up had a hydrophone AQH-020 by AquaSound Inc. (20Hz - 20kHz) connected to Amplifier Aquafeeler III (SQE-1001B, 50dB gain) by AquaSound Inc. and a recorder PCMM10 by Sony (44.1 kHz, 16 bit, auto-mode). Recording depth was about 6.6 m, except a record collected on July 27, 2019 at 15:56:33 (depth was about 0.5 m). Second set-up had a hydrophone SoundTrap SD3000 by Ocean Instruments NZ (20Hz - 60kHz), integrated with amplifier and recorder, sampling at 96 kHz, 16 bit. Signal-topressure conversion constant was 176.2 dB for this particular device (ID number 5146, at High-Gain mode). Recording depth was about 10.8 m, except records collected on July 20, 2019 between 00:44:47 and 08:44:47 (depth was about 1 m).
