SERF Acoustic Study raw audio data

Viewed: 1149
This dataset is the raw audio data resulting from a study investigating the effectiveness of acoustic sensors compared to traditional field survey methods. Sensor networks were developed for observing and assessing the environmental and ecological systems at Samford Ecological Research Facility (SERF). As of September 2011, there ae 65 audio readings.
