Sea trial in Grand Passage, Bay of Fundy

August 21, 2019

This underwater communication sea trial experiment took place on August 14, 2019 in Grand Passage, Nova Scotia. A variety of signals were wirelessly transmitted underwater via acoustics, and then the receiver was left to passively record for a period of 7 days.  By analyzing the recordings, we could hear lots of animal activity throughout the seven days.
