Spectrogram displays of frequency of underwater noise within the Bay of Gibraltar (2021).
A and B are two different ways of displaying noise frequencies i.e. both Power Spectral Density (PSD) and Third Octave levels (TOLs) Spectrograms of high peak underwater noise recorded during a weekend at midday. The red areas at the start of the spectrogram are attributed to an oil tanker dropping anchor and activity towards end of the recording (after 150 secs) (Commercial vessels).
The high frequency noise at 50 secs is attributed to a fishing vessel passing close to the hydrophone (recreational vessels).
Example of a law enforcement launch.
