Bowhead Whales

This configuration file provides an example of how to detect Bowhead whale end notes. It was created using the example data provided by Mobysound ( The example requires at least 1.5 kHz data (3 kHz sample rate) to run. Note that the noise window is shorter than recommended by the 'rules of thumb' in the help. This was to avoid bringing neighbouring calls into the noise estimate. The threshold was also lowered slightly from the default (4.0 dB vice 7.0 dB) to detect more calls. More testing would be required to decide on the most robust setting.
