Temporal patterns in ambient noise of biological origin from a shallow water temperate reef

  title={Temporal patterns in ambient noise of biological origin from a shallow water temperate reef},
  author={Craig A Radford and Andrew G. Jeffs and Chris T. Tindle and J C Montgomery},
A systematic study of the ambient noise in the shallow coastal waters of north-eastern New Zealand shows large temporal variability in acoustic power levels between seasons, moon phase and the time of day. Ambient noise levels were highest during the new moon and the lowest during the full moon. Ambient noise levels were also significantly higher during summer and lower during winter. Bandpass filtering (700–2,000 Hz and 2–15 kHz), combined with snap counts and data from other studies show that… CONTINUE READING
