WP2: Full Seafloor Spectrum

This WP consolidates the cross-WP tasks of dataset selection and validation, reducing work in each WP and choosing datasets with more cross-WP interest. This WP will also quantify seismological noise levels and compile a a full-spectrum vision of the results of WPs 3-5.

Task 2.1: Dataset identification and validation

● 2.1.1: Catalogue existing databases and their characteristics (access method, region, sensors, seasons…) ● 2.1.2: Evaluate the interest of each dataset according to the needs of WPs 3-5 ● 2.1.3: Select data sets based on the above criteria ● 2.1.3: Validate data access and specify the access method for each selected data set

Task 2.2: Pressure noise bounds

For the chosen data sets and other large or spatially isolated datasets, we will confirm instrument responses and calculate Probabilistic Power Spectral Densities to determine upper and lower bounds of seafloor pressure signals.

Task 2.3: Seismological noise source catalog

Combining the noise sources identified by WPs 3-5 with other sources in the scientific literature.
