Hello all,

The latest edition of the Marine Sound Collection Newsletter is now  
available online at http://mlsource.ornith.cornell.edu/marine/ 

The big topics covered in this issue are:

- Release of the acoustic parameters website. This site describes the  
initial acoustic measures (or features) choosen for use with the  
sound archive. At the site you can participate in this project by  
downloading the measures to test in Matlab and providing feedback on  
these measures in an online forum (http://ethodata.org/features).

-  New equipment: several new solid state recorders have been  
released since our first review of new recorders a year ago.

I will be at ASA in Providence this upcoming week and will present a  
talk on the feature extraction project, as well as describe some new  
components being released in the latest version of the visualization  
tool. The talk is at 0800 Friday 9 June in session 5aABb for those  
who will be in attendance; please come hear about this project and  
how you can help develop these tools!
