Acoustic Capabilities of Existing Observing Systems

IQOE is collecting metadata for hydrophones deployed worlwide. The locations of these hydrophones is shown on the map below, but other metadata are also being collected.To submit metadata for a hydrophone location not already shown on the map, please download the metadata form and submit it to Ed Urban

Locations of civilian hydrophones potentially useful to study effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on ocean sound and other acoustic characteristics of the ocean are shown here, as of 8 August 2021. Figure by Eduardo Klein of the Universidad Simón Bolívar, Caracas, Venezuela.

Acronym Definitions

Cabled Systems

relates to time synchrony between elements and between the GPS time. specifies the time interval between data downloads. is the depth at which the sensors are located. indicates whether or not the acoustic system is calibrated. highlights other data available or planned from the same region of the acoustic sensors. conveys how accessible the data are to the public. refers to the original and/or current sponsor providing funding support for the system. indicates the societal purpose for which the system was originally designed reports the years of system installation and projected life expectancy of the system.
