    García Izquierdo, Carmen; Garcia Benadí, Albert; Río Fernandez, Joaquín del; Nogueras Cervera, Marc (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the framework of the EMRP project “ENV 58. Metrology for essential climate variables”, a new technique to perform traceable temperature measurements of the sea water column and sea water surface was designed and it is ...
  • OBSEA, a marine sensor testing site for metrology 

    Carandell Widmer, Matias; Garcia Benadí, Albert; Río Fernandez, Joaquín del (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Marine sensors needs to be tested in real and controlled environments in order to assure, both, proper functionality of the sensor and good enough measurements. Most of the times is not enough testing on the lab, field ...
  • Acoustics in water: synergies with marine biology 

    Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; Lahmann, Robert; Graf, Kay; Houégnigan, Ludwig; Solsona Berga, Alba; Vreese, Steffen de; Sánchez, Antonio; André, Michel (2016)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper presents some of the bioacoustics related analysis that was performed on the ANTARES data, focussing on the year 2014. The data was processed for sperm whale, dolphin and shipping presence and grouped by hour ...

    Garcia Benadí, Albert; Cadena Muñoz, Francisco Javier; Roset Juan, Francesc Xavier; Río Fernandez, Joaquín del (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The aim of the paper is shows the variation of the background noise level located in the shore Mediterranean Sea using the data acquired by the OBSEA’s hydrophone during a period of time of 4 months, from April 2015 to June 2015

  • Good Practice Guide for calibrating a hydrophone "in situ" 

    Garcia Benadí, Albert; Cadena Muñoz, Francisco Javier; Río Fernandez, Joaquín del; Manuel Lázaro, Antonio (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The aim of this paper is to provide the basis for the calibration of a hydrophone "in situ", thus assigning a value of uncertainty, which may be high, but according to requirements may be sufficient.
