Previous DCL Workshops
The Dataset is available at
Having these workshops organized together
particularly topical given the emerging interest and need
processing acoustic monitoring data into meaningful
statistics to be used for science, management and
1st International Workshop on Density Estimation (DE) of Marine Mammals Using Passive Acoustics
This one-day workshop will bring together
researchers working on estimating absolute density or
marine mammal populations using passive acoustics. It will
immediately after the DCL workshop. All those attending
workshop and with an interest in this field are welcome to
workshop will begin with a tutorial overview of the area,
contributed oral and poster presentations showcasing
Time will be set aside for open discussion. We invite
