The Oceans are Alive with Sound

Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium has created a new interactive, educational exhibit to teach our visitors about the sounds of the ocean. This exhibit builds on the work of Mote’s Dr. James Locascio. With funding from SECOORA, Dr. Locasio and his team are developing machine-learning algorithms to automatically identify different biological, geophysical, and anthropogenic (human-made) sounds.

SECOORA

The Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA) works with stakeholders within the four southeastern states – North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida – to monitor our coasts and ocean. SECOORA provides coastal and oceanographic data and products to communities, state and Federal agencies, and industries within the region.
