The Acoustic and Environmental Observation Network in the NW Atlantic (AEON) in the Gulf of Maine complements existing oceanographic monitoring infrastructure allowing studies to be performed that may reveal significant connections between these measurements and the overall environment. The network provides simultaneous, long-term monitoring of soundscapes and multiple acoustically relevant parameters such as marine mammal behavior and prey concentration at key locations where the effects of changes in the Labrador and Gulf Stream currents are projected to impact the Gulf of Maine.
