Hydrophone Spectral Data

A number of hydrophones are producing audio data with sounds at a wide range of frequencies, having applications in seismology, marine mammal studies, ship noise and more. Hydrophone spectral data (PNG/PDF image files of the spectrogram, FFT and MAT data files) are provided as a summary of the audio recording and for detailed analysis. With spectrogram images and data, users can determine the sources and nature of sounds they can hear in the audio data files: passing ships make hyperbolic curves, whales make chirps and resonances, etc. Spectrogram images, particularly the PDF format, are a great way to scan through a vast amount of data quickly, looking for events. Listening to this data would be very time consuming, plus the human ear is not capable of picking up some high or low frequency sounds that may be quite interesting.

Spectrogram image files (PDF/PNG) are available for all hydrophones and hydrophone arrays. For hydrophones located on low-bandwidth observatories (Cambridge Bay, Brentwood Bay, etc), audio data files may not be available. In this case, audio data is stored on site to be retrieved periodically during site visits and uploaded to the archiving system. To provide live data, low-bandwidth observatories upload spectrogram FFT files as they are much smaller than the full audio data. FFT files may be used to generate and fill in spectrogram plots when full audio data is not available (see the Spectrogram Source data product option option). MAT files store one-minute ensemble-averaged spectral data, primarily for use in spectral probability density plots.

Data Diversion

Given the sensitive nature of hydrophone data,  the military has authority to completely divert the data and/or filter it as required.  When filtering occurs, the file-name is appended with '-HPF' or '-LPF', corresponding to high and low pass filtered data. Often, the military diverted data will be returned at a later date, normally modified from the original data (we will often get the spectral complement to the high or low pass filtered data). See here for more information on the diversion of hydrophone and seismometer data. Data product options are provided to sort out the various types of diverted data (see below). Not all options are available for all devices: for instance, in some cases, we may not offer '-LPF' spectrograms even if there are '-LPF' audio files because such a spectrogram would offer so very little useful data. For icListen HF hydrophones in particular, FFT spectral data are often available during a diversion and will be used to produce spectrograms to fill in data gaps until audio data is returned.

Processing Time

Spectrograms may take some time to generate. PNG spectrograms files are normally pre-generated and stored, so their retrieval is quick. However, PDF spectrograms are not pre-generated, but will be computed on-demand from stored source WAV or HYD files. Processing speed is nominally about 5 to 20 seconds per 5 minute audio file. The final step of PDF generation, aggregating the individual spectrograms, takes more time for a larger number of files. In all, requesting a day's worth of PDF spectrograms may 20 to 60 minutes. Please be patient, a day's worth of data is roughly 16 GB of WAV files, 500 MB of MP3s, 160 MB of PDFs, 200 MB of PNGs, 100 MB of MATs. A single hydrophone can generate terabytes of data in a year. It is a vast amount of data to store and serve to our users.

Calibration

Spectrograms, spectral data and spectral probability density are calibrated to absolute sound pressure level whenever the calibration is available. Calibration data can be found in the device attributes page for each device, e.g. http://dmas.uvic.ca/DeviceListing?DeviceId=23159. Calibrations are time sensitive and frequency specific. For instance, if a 48 kHz hydrophone only has calibration for the first 1600 Hz, then only the calibrated frequency bins will be shown, even though the device is captures signals up to 24 kHz. We will endeavour to calibrate as many hydrophones as possible: the icListen hydrophones in particular are more readily calibrated. When calibration is available, the units on the spectrograms will be dB re 1 uPa RMS and SpectData.isCalibrated in the mat files will be true or 1. When calibration is not available, the units on the spectrograms will be dB re full scale and SpectData.isCalibrated in the mat files will be false or 0. Note that spectrograms produced from FFT spectral data are not calibrated.

Data Product Options

Hydrophone Channel

 

For hydrophone data products only (audio and spectrogram data) on the hydrophone array devices only:
H1

This option will cause the search to return results for hydrophone channel H1 only. The hydrophone arrays consist of multiple hydrophones connected to a single data acquisition computer, which collects the data into single files that have multiple channels (nominally raw hydrophone array files, although other formats can handle multiple channels). Data products may be produced from these files on a per channel basis and returned as specified.

This is the default option.

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneChannel=H1

File-name mode field

'H1' is added to the file-name when the hydrophone channel option is set to H1, i.e. IOS3HYDARR02_20111211T152404.000Z-spect-H1.pdf.

H2

This option will cause the search to return results for hydrophone channel H2 only.

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneChannel=H2

File-name mode field

'H2' is added to the file-name when the hydrophone channel option is set to H2, i.e. IOS3HYDARR02_20111211T152404.000Z-spect-H2.png.

H3

This option will cause the search to return results for hydrophone channel H3 only.

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneChannel=H3

File-name mode field

'H2' is added to the file-name when the hydrophone channel option is set to H3, i.e. IOS3HYDARR02_20120801T090939.000Z-H3.mp3.

All

This option will cause the search to return results for all available hydrophone channels.

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneChannel=All

File-name mode field

'H1', 'H2', 'H3', etc are added to the file-name.

Hydrophone Data Diversion Mode

 

For hydrophone data products only (audio and spectrogram data):

Hydrophones that have both low and high frequency sensors will have the data acquisition mode option while the other hydrophones will have the data diversion mode option.

Diversion Mode

For security reasons, the military occasionally diverts seismic and acoustic data. Over time how this diversion is performed has changed. Currently, when diverted the entire data set is removed.  Diverted data is then reviewed by military authorities, if it does not contain sensitive recordings it is returned to the ONC archive.

Prior to August 2016, instead of diverting the entire frequency range of the data, the military diverted only a low frequency band of the data. When this filtering occurred, the file-name was appended with 'LPF' or 'HPF' for high-pass or low-pass filtering. Sometimes one-half of this diverted was available live, while the other component was withheld for review. Usually that withheld data was returned, after a delay of 3 days to 2 months.  Once filtered, this data remained in the LPF/HPF frequency bands.

Data diversion is further explained in the data diversion page.

Original Data

This option will cause the search to return results for original data only. Files labelled with "-HPF" or "-LPF" are excluded as well as any files that overlap in time with "-HPF" or "-LPF" files. For spectral probability density plots and spectrograms, 'Data Diversion Mode: Original Data' will appear in the plot title.

This is the default option.

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneDataDiversionMode=OD

Low Pass Filtered

Applies to pre-August 2016 data only. This option will cause the search to return results for diverted data that has been low pass filtered only (only files with "-LPF" in the their file-names). For spectral probability density plots and spectrograms, 'Data Diversion Mode: Low Pass Filtered' will appear in the plot title.

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneDataDiversionMode=LPF

High Pass Filtered

Applies to pre-August 2016 data only. This option will cause the search to return results for diverted data that has been high pass filtered only (only files with "-HPF" in the their file-names). For spectral probability density plots and spectrograms, 'Data Diversion Mode: High Pass Filtered' will appear in the plot title.

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneDataDiversionMode=HPF

All

This option will cause the search to return results for all data. For spectral probability density plots and spectrograms, 'Data Diversion Mode: High Pass Filtered' will appear in the plot title. This is only way to see data that overlaps in time with files labelled "-LPF" or "-HPF".

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneDataDiversionMode=All


File-name mode field

"-LPF" or "-HPF" is added to the file-name when the quality option is set to high or low pass filtered data, i.e. ICLISTENHF1234_20110101T000000Z-HPF.wav. For spectral probability density data products, 'All' may be added to the file-name, as these plots can join LPF, Original and HPF data together into one plot if the spectral frequency bins are the same (data with different frequency content will make addition plots with labels indicating the frequency range). For brevity, 'Original' does not get added to the file-name.

Acquisition Mode

For hydrophones operating with a duty cycle that includes high and low frequency sample rates. The low sample frequency data will likely have a sample frequency of 16 kHz and the high sample frequency data will likely have a sample frequency greater or equal to then 128 kHz.

Low Sample Frequency

This option will cause the search to return results for the low sample frequency data only (files with "-16KHZ" in their file-names). For spectral probability density plots and spectrograms, "Data Acquisition Mode: Low Frequency" will appear in the plot title. 

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneAcquisitionMode=LF

High Sample Frequency 

This option will cause the search to return results for the high sample frequency data only (files with "-128KHZ" or similar in their file-names). For spectral probability density plots and spectrograms, "Data Acquisition Mode: High Frequency" will appear in the plot title. 

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneAcquisitionMode=HF

All

This option will cause the search to return results for both the low and high sample frequency data or other mode data. For spectral probability density plots and MAT files, the low and high frequency data will be segregated regardless of option. 

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_hydrophoneAcquisitionMode=All


File-name mode field

The sample frequency is added to the file-name for each data acquisition mode option, i.e.  ICLISTENHF1234_20110101T000000Z-16KHZ.wav. There is a device attribute on devices with a duty cycle that links the low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF) acquisition modes with the exact file-name mode modifier string - if this link is not correct, the data acquisition mode option will not properly filter the data products.

{include: Hydrophone Data Acquisition and Diversion Mode}

Spectrogram Source

For hydrophone spectrogram (PNG and PDF) data products only, when FFT spectral data is available (icListen HF hydrophones currently):


Audio Data Preferred (FFT spectral data fills in gaps only)

In this default option, searches for spectrogram data products will return the best combination of spectrograms sourced from .wav or .hyd audio data files and sourced from FFT spectral data files. Hydrophones produce audio data and spectrograms are best generated from the audio data. However, in some circumstances, such as low bandwidth data connections to remote hydrophones or military diversion, audio data is not available and we only receive spectral FFT data files. Spectrograms produced from FFT data files fill in the gaps where with normal audio data sourced spectrograms are not available. This presents the user with the most complete coverage of data. 

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_spectrogramSource=MIX

Audio data only

This option will cause the search to only return spectrograms sourced from audio data. This is useful if you just want the high resolution spectrograms.

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_spectrogramSource=WAV

.fft Spectral Data only (maybe available regardless of data diversion mode)

This option will cause the search to only return spectrograms sourced from FFT spectral data files. This is useful when audio data is present, but is limited in bandwidth due to military diversion. FFT sourced spectrograms have less resolution than audio sourced spectrograms but often have frequency ranges from 0 to well above 44 kHz (audio data is often limited to 44 kHz sampling)..

Oceans 2.0 API filterdpo_spectrogramSource=FFT

File-name mode field

Spectrograms produced from .fft spectral data files are appended with a '-FFT', and are also noted as such within the plots themselves. 

Spectrogram Collation

For hydrophone spectral data PNG/PDF plots: 

For hydrophone spectral data MAT file data products:

Collate Daily

The spectrogram collation option allows users to group/collate spectral data into PNG/PDF plots and data (MAT) files. For plots, daily spectrograms are available, while the data files can be daily or unlimited duration collations. Spectral data is assembled into 1-minute box car averages (no overlap), accounting for the logarithmic scale of the data. The other options have an effect on this process as well: if multiple acquisition modes, channels, diversion or source file type data is present in the collation, these will be separated into different files so that dissimilar data is not combined.

Collate (Until File Size Limits Reached)

This is the default option for spectral MAT data files and is not available for PNG/PDF spectrogram plots. Data is accumulated/collated as much as possible, barring file size limits and frequency range compatibility.

None (One FIle For Every Source Audio File)

This is the default option for PNG/PDF spectrogram plots. This option will cause the accumulation/collation step to be skipped and one file for each source wav, hyd or fft file will be returned, often directly from the archive (Spectral MAT data files are archived along with PNG spectrograms for fast retrieval).

File-name mode field

The Collate Daily option will add a -DAILY to the filename; the Collate (Until File Size Limits Reached) option will add a -COLLATE to the filename.


Format

PNG/PDF (Hydrophone Spectrogram Plot)

Generally, this format is a spectrogram plot of 5 minutes of hydrophone/audio data. Here is an example PNG spectrogram taken from a hydrophone as Cascadia Basin:

Since spectrograms are stored for fast retrieval, users may see older versions (such as the example above), which have different titles, logos, etc., however the data is the same. The colour scale is fixed to facilitate comparisons between multiple spectrograms. Some spectrograms are calibrated with units of dB re 1 μPa. Non-calibrated spectrogram have a colour scale that is relative to the full range of the source audio file: the extreme values in the audio file are scaled from 0 to 1, so that the dB scale is from \-120 dB (0.000001) to 0 dB (1). The spectrogram is generated by a modified Welch method: the data is windowed in time (Hann window 50% overlap) the length of each window is equal to the length of the FFT and the power spectra of each windowed segment is then a column in spectrogram data matrix, the rows are the different frequencies. If calibrated, the calibration range and resolution sets the length of the FFT, while if not calibrated, the length is set by optimizing the trade-off between temporal and spectral resolutions so that the spectrogram data matrix has an aspect ratio that's similar to that of the image file to be generated. Quite often, there are far more columns and rows in the spectrogram data matrix than there are pixels in the image file. In that case, the spectrogram data matrix is downsampled by linear scale box car averaging in both time and frequency to closely match the size of the image in pixels. This occurs after the spectrogram data is calculated, but prior to printing the data to the image file. Standard image renders would distort the logarithmic scale data with linear scale, anti-alias low-pass filtering or averaging, or if not, they would alias the data by decimating it. (There are actually two rendering stages: at image file creation and when the file is printed or displayed on screen, so it is best to view or print spectrograms with as many pixels as in the image file.) This downsampling only occurs for newer versions of the spectrogram data product. Newer versions also have a fixed relationship between time and position on the plot (1 pixel is about 0.3 seconds): if less than 5 minutes of data is provided in the audio source file, the spectrogram will not be stretched to fill the x-axis, but instead the x-axis will be shorter than usual. This will allow us to stitch together spectrograms in our data viewers (to be developed, prototype version exists). An exception to the fixed duration of spectrograms is when there are specific deployments with a varying duty cycle, where the duration and sample rate of the source WAV files vary; for example: 60 seconds at 128 kHz and 12 minutes at 16 kHz sample rate. In this case, a device attribute is used to specify a new fixed spectrogram duration for each sample rate of that duty cycle. Below is an example of the latest version of the spectrogram data product.

The PDF format contains multiple pages, with each page containing one spectrogram. We recommend this format when users would like to scroll through a large amount data looking for events such as whale calls. PDF spectrograms are not normally archived for fast retrieval, so they will be generated on the fly, which will take some time. PDF spectrograms do have the advantage of having higher resolution, approximately 300 dpi for landscape letter sized image, while the PNG spectrograms are 1200 by 900 pixels.

Spectrograms can be produced from WAV files (described above) or from FFT files (described below). Spectrograms generated from FFT files have a fixed and generally lower resolution, but have the advantages of not being affected by military diversion and have wider frequency range (WAV-sourced spectrograms maybe limited in frequency by their multi-point calibration). Here is an example of a spectrogram generated from an FFT file:

Daily or Collated Spectrograms

The spectrogram collation option allows users to group/collate spectral data into plots and data (MAT) files. For plots, daily spectrograms are available, while the data files can be daily or unlimited duration collations. Spectral data is assembled into 1-minute box car averages (no overlap), accounting for the logarithmic scale of the data. These plots are useful for daily inspections of data and, as such, will appear on Data Preview. Here's an example where a passing ship can be seen:

FFT (Hydrophone Spectrogram Data File)

The FFT format is an ASCII text file with a single column of data. It is intended for expert users, while other users may defer to the spectrogram PNG/PDF plots, which may be made from FFT files on user option or when WAV files (audio data) is not available (FFT files are available when audio data is diverted by the military). FFT files are only offered on icListen HF and AF hydrophones and often only for devices with low-bandwidth connections, such as the hydrophone currently at Cambridge Bay (deviceID [instruments:23155]). The file consists of repeating sequences of 512 FFT spectral coefficients, spanning five minutes. The current sampling rate is 256 kHz, with 4 FFTs per second, or 1200 in one file, with a frequency bin spacing of 250 Hz.  Using MATLAB, one can visualize it (i.e. make a spectrogram) quickly with the following commands:

data = dlmRead('myFFTfile.fft', ',');
specData = reshape(data, [512, length(data)/512]);
imagesc((1:size(specData,2))/4, (511:-1:0)*0.250, flipud(specData));
axis xy
xlabel('Time (seconds)');
ylabel('Frequency (kHz)');
cb = colorbar;
ylabel(cb,'(dB re 1 \muPa)');


Please note the above stub of MATLAB code is an example only, with hard-coded parameters.

 OCT (Hydrophone Spectrogram Data File - 1/3 Octave Bands)

The OCT format is an ASCII text file with a single column of data, very similar to the FFT format described above. Both FFT and OCT files represent sound intensity in the frequency domain. It is intended for expert users, while other users may defer to the spectrogram PNG/PDF plots. OCT files are only offered on specific JASCO / GeoSpectrum hydrophones. The file consists of repeating sequences of 55 1/3 octave band sound pressure levels in dB, with a single point calibration. The centre frequency of each 1/3 octave band is shown in the table within the expander below. The files nominally span five minutes and values are reported once per second, so a five minute file should contain 16,500 entries. One can visualize the data in Matlab with code similar to the code presented above for FFT files, but with modifications for the 55 bands and their frequencies. If you are interested in viewing this data please contact us, we can help develop visualization and perhaps a data product.

MAT (Hydrophone Spectrogram Data File)

The MAT file format contains the data used to create the spectrograms, but resampled to one-minute average ensembles (the data is converted from dB to linear, averaged, converted back to dB). The one-minute average ensembles are used as source data for [spectral probability density plots|http://wiki.oceannetworks.ca/display/DP/51]. These files are pre-processed and stored for fast retrieval. If pre-processed MAT files do not exist in the archive, then they are created on the fly, which is much slower. On retrieval or on-the-fly generation, there is one small, ~150 kB, MAT file per wave or hyd source audio file. For ease of use, the multiple small MAT files are then concatenated, with the concatenated MAT files breaking on configuration change (exceedingly rare) or on a size limit of approximately 1 GB in memory. The concatenation process applies a weighted average of ensemble periods that overlap between the small MAT files, accounting for count and conversion to linear scale and back to dB.

Hydrophone spectral MAT files contain two structures, the nominal complex data metadata structure Meta and the data: SpectData
