Recordings: Bat Acoustic Workshop
Working with acoustic data is a challenge that can be paralyzing due to the volumes of data generated that needs to be processed.
Dr. Bruce Miller, a bat acoustics expert, took us on an exciting journey during the workshop “Bats Equal BIG DATA Challenges” at the University of Florida on 1 February 2018 in collaboration with the UF Biodiversity Institute and the TCD program in the Center for Latin American Studies.
The workshop provided an introduction to bat acoustics, what call parameters can be measured and what are useful for identifications, as well as to learn about some of the main issues researchers face when dealing with acoustic data. All this represents great resources and valuable information for people interested in working with bat acoustics.
