Abstract

The problem of detection and recognition of contact calls produced by North Atlantic right whales, Eubalaena glacialis, is considered. A proposed solution is based on a multiple-stage hypothesis-testing technique involving a spectrogram-based detector, spectrogram testing, and feature vector testing algorithms. Results show that the proposed technique is able to detect over 80% of the contact calls detected by a human operator and to produce about 26 false alarms per 24 h of observation.
