This paper presents a method to detect and classify odontocete echolocation clicks as well as to estimate the number of animals that are vocalizing. A transient detector using the Page test [1-3] is used to extract the clicks: the click time, the click duration, the click amplitude and the spectral information of the clicks are extracted. A probability distribution over the species is assigned to each click, based on the spectral information of the click. The estimation of the number of animals… CONTINUE READING
