Acoustic Telemetry – how it works and why it’s useful
How can scientists uncover the movements and habitat use of aquatic animals? On land, GPS is useful, but that doesn’t work in water. So how can we track animals underwater? One way to do that is using acoustic telemetry. This video demonstrates how that technology works and why it’s useful for the sustainable conservation and management of aquatic life. The creation of this video was supported by the European Tracking Network COST-Action (CA18102). COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation (www.cost.eu).
