What is Passive Acoustic Monitoring? Exploring the World of Ocean Acoustics

Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) is a technology used to listen to and analyze sounds in the ocean without actively emitting any signals. It relies on capturing natural sounds produced by marine life, such as whales, dolphins, as well as environmental sounds like waves and wind. By recording and analyzing these sounds, scientists can gain insights into various aspects of marine life, including behavior, population dynamics, and habitat use, without disturbing the underwater environment.
