Statistical analysis of SAMBAH survey and associated data

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


SAMBAH (Static Acoustic Monitoring of the Baltic Sea Harbour Porpoise) was an international project involving all EU countries around the Baltic Sea, funded by those countries and by the EU Life program (Project Number LIFE08 NAT/S/000261). It ran from 1/1/2010 to 30/9/2015. One major goal of the project was to estimate the abundance of Baltic Sea harbour porpoise, by designing and implementing a large-scale multi-year passive acoustic survey. CREEM was contracted to collaborate on the survey design, and provide statistical analysis of resulting data. A number of internal reports were produced and circulated to the project team, detailing aspects of the analysis. In this CREEM technical report, we collate the most recent version of each of these internal reports as a means of making them publicly available.
