- Sperm Whale…
This configuration file provides an example of how to detect Sperm Whale clicks. It was created using wideband sonobuoy recordings from the AUTEC range.
The example requires at least 35 kHz data (70 kHz sample rate) to run. The minimum time between detections was set to 0.5 seconds as the inter-click interval was just less than a second.
Sperm whale clicks are so broadband that they make use of a standard guard band impossible. Instead, the guard band was used to define what effectively becomes a second noise window (but using the signal window parameter in the guard band; 0.5 seconds). This helps to ensure that signal excess is obtained over both a short and longer term average.
