What is an AudioMoth?
One of the fantastic things about the AudioMoth is that it can record anything that makes noise – from ultrasonic bat calls to anthropogenic noise.
The workshop will cover the following steps and topics:
- Brief background into the science of acoustic ecology
- What AudioMoths are and why they have changed the field
- Scientific applications – the Silent Cities (covid-sound) project and the UWIN project
- AudioMoth operations (the programming that comes with it – the wide applications of the device)
- Free Machine Learning tool (BirdNet) available for processing bird song
- Time for you to check out the device, ask questions, experiment with the software, etc.
