Cetacean’s detection onboard system

The work package includes several tasks that will be developed together with the partners & stakeholders:  When surfacing, cetaceans in general have a relatively small signature due to their sizes and the small difference between their body temperature and the water temperature. The temporal persistence of this signature is also limited because whales surfacing times […]
