It was installed in 2015 \non the seafloor 1.5km off the coast of Spiddal, Co. Galway, Ireland at a depth of 20-25m. Underwater \nobservatories allow ocean researchers unique real-time access to monitor ongoing changes in the marine \nenvironment. The SmartBay Observatory is an important contribution by Ireland to the growing global network of \nreal-time data capture systems deployed in the ocean. Data relating to the marine environment at the SmartBay \nObservatory site is transferred in real-time through a fibre optic telecommunications cable to the Marine \nInstitute headquarters and then made publically available on the internet. The data includes a live video \nstream, the depth of the observatory node, the water temperature and salinity, and estimates of the chlorophyll \nand turbidity levels in the water which give an indication of the volume of phytoplankton and other particles, \nsuch as sediment, in the water. Maintenance take place on the observatory every 18 to 24 months.This dataset \ncomprises of processed acoustic data that has been collected from the SmartBay Observatory using an icListen HF \nSmart Hydrophone – a digital hydrophone that processes and stores acoustic data. The dataset comprises of \nprocessed data, collected from the SmartBay Observatory since its installation in 2015. The wide frequency range \nhydrophone is installed on a separate lander approximately 30m away from the EMSO Smartbay Cable End Equipment \nNode in Galway Bay in approx. 25m depth of water at 53 degrees 13.640'N 9 degrees 15.979'W.\n\ncdm_data_type = Point\nVARIABLES:\ndevice\n...
