Original provider: Claudio Fossati, University of Pavia Dataset credits: Claudio Fossati and Giulia Romè, CIBRA Center for Bioacoustics, University of Pavia Abstract: CIBRA Center for Bioacoustics, Univ. of Pavia, organizes research cruises in the Med sea since 1994. Visual and acoustic contacts (1994 - 2001) are available on OBIS-SEAMAP, while acoustic recordings are stored in our Sound library and available upon request. Purpose: Data were collected during cetacean research campaigns, acoustic software and hardware development campaigns. Supplemental information: Tracks of the cruises are coarse in June and Sept 1994, June 1995. From 1996 on, tracks are finer. Data from acoustic contacts are registered in a separate dataset "Acoustic detections from research cruises in the Med sea, 1994-2001".
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 90 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
