Recordings of ship noise were analysed to build a catalogue of ship noise signatures in Australian waters, including source spectra and source levels. The data described by this record is derived from an initial set of five deployments by the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) acoustic observatories.
Long-term passive acoustic observations were made at the edge of the continental shelf south of Bremer Bay, Western Australia, from February 2015 to February 2016, in order to assess seasonal patterns in the presence of various baleen and toothed whales around the Bremer Canyon/Marine Park. Further information is available in: Gavrilov A, Erbe C. 2017. Assessment of marine megafauna found at the edge of the continental shelf off Bremer Bay using passive acoustic observations. Report to the National Environmental Science Programme Marine Biodiversity Hub (CMST 2017-3), 35 p.

This dataset relates to statistical models of killer whale (Orcinus orca) occurrence in the Bremer Sub-Basin developed from vessel-based and aerial survey data collected between 2015 and 2017. Further information can be found in: Salgado-Kent C, Parnum I, Wellard R, Erbe C, Fouda L. 2017. Habitat preferences and distribution of killer whales (Orcinus orca) in the Bremer Sub-Basin, Australia.
