COLLOQUIUM: Ocean Acoustic Ecology: Great Whales, Ocean Scales, Big Data
Empirical evidence shows that great whale singers can be heard across an ocean basin, there are no known deaf marine vertebrates, and sounds from human activities impose acute and chronic costs over enormous areas of the marine acoustic environment for large portions of the year. The dramatic increase in ocean acoustic sensor data offers huge opportunities for discovery, yet underscores the lack of data systems and scientific coherence at appropriate scales. Keeping pace with big data for current access and analyses needs at appropriate scales poses some daunting logistical and technical challenges, but the greater challenge is not so much the science and technology as it is political denial and social inertia.
