Automated Detection of Fishing Vessels using Smart Hydrophones on an Underwater Coastal Glider

  title={Automated Detection of Fishing Vessels using Smart Hydrophones on an Underwater Coastal Glider},
  author={Mark Wood},
AUVs operating in coastal waters where fishing vessels are also operating are at risk of becoming entangled in nets, long lines, or other fishing equipment in the water close to the surface. Autonomous gliders operating in these coastal waters are probably more susceptible to the dangers of these fishing vessels than powered AUVs, but the risks exist

A major difficulty in tracking unidentified vessels at sea is due to the need to observe large areas for long periods of time for sparsely appearing targets. A possible solution is to use a networkExpand


Averaging underwater noise levels for environmental assessment of shipping.
Mean sound pressure levels averaged in linear space, though susceptible to strong bias from outliers, are most relevant to cumulative impact assessment metrics. Expand

Underwater Noise Generated by a Small Ship in the Shallow Sea
Study of the sea noise has been a subject of interest for many years. The first works in this scope were published at the turn of the twentieth century by Knudsen (Knudsen et al., 1948) and G. WenzExpand

Anthropogenic and natural sources of ambient noise in the ocean
Ocean ambient noise results from both anthropogenic and natural sources. Different noise sources are dominant in each of 3 frequency bands: low (10 to 500 Hz), medium (500 Hz to 25 kHz) and high (>25Expand
Mechanics of underwater noise
Abstract : The basic mechanisms by which acoustic noise is generated, transmitted by structures, and radiated into the underwater environment are explained. Dominant mechanisms which have practicalExpand
