Remote passive acoustic monitoring (RPAM) is a new technology that enables the acoustic monitoring of marine mammals from an onshore location. Acoustic data are transferred in real time via satellite link from an at-sea passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) system. From anywhere in the world, an RPAM operator can detect, listen to, and track vocalizing whales and dolphins, potentially reducing the number of operators at sea.
