This RFP is now closed.
OERA is seeking proposals to reduce the time between passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) data collection and the reporting of marine mammals around tidal energy devices. To achieve this objective this RFP seeks technical expertise to automate the processing of pressure time series data (i.e., *wav files) collected by hydrophones and automation of analyses to address i) frequency of detections, ii) abundance estimation, and iii) distribution relative to a tidal energy turbine.
