The calculation of acoustic indices to characterise acoustic recordings of the environment

Towsey, Michael W. (2012) The calculation of acoustic indices to characterise acoustic recordings of the environment.


This technical report describes the methods used to obtain a list of acoustic indices that are used to characterise the structure and distribution of acoustic energy in recordings of the natural environment. In particular it describes methods for noise reduction from recordings of the environment and a fast clustering algorithm used to estimate the spectral richness of long recordings.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
