It’s been a long time between posts, and there have been many exciting developments for the Australian Acoustic Observatory over the intervening period. A large number of sites have been added to the A2O network, ranging from the far north to Tasmania, and the arid interior to coastal locations. Many recordings are now processed and are being made accessible through the A2O data portal.
A2O infrastructure is now hosted by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane. The move to QUT has been an involved process, and we aim to minimise any further delays related to the new arrangement. Thank you to everyone for your patience, and please check in regularly with the observatory for future developments.
The observatory has also had a paper published in Methods in Ecology and Evolution. The paper can be accessed here. Please reference this paper if you plan to use A2O data in any publications or projects.
Thanks again for your support and enthusiasm for the Australian Acoustic Observatory! Keep an eye out for more news here and keep in touch with the A2O team if you have any comments or questions.
