What is the Australian Acoustic Observatory (A2O)?

The Australian Acoustic Observatory (A2O) is a continental-scale acoustic sensor network, recording for a five-year period across multiple Australian ecosystems. A2O will have 400 continuously operating acoustic recorders collecting approximately 2PB of sound data over the duration of the project. The project is funded by an ARC Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) grant of $1.8 million.
