Welcome! My name is Dr. Ramón Miralles, and I am an Electronic Engineer with a
passion for Science. I do research in Signal Processing incorporating all aspects of the theory and practice
of signal processing in different areas: industry, acoustics, ecology and environment. You will find here an
overview of the research I am doing as well as some Matlab libraries and manuscript drafts of published
scientific papers I have authored.
New research project started.
The fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus) is the second-largest species of whale and typically travel in the open seas, away from the coast, so they are difficult to track.
We will study the behaviour of these amazing animals using acoustic techniques in our new project (CaboRorcual) Funded by the "Fundación Biodiversidad".
Learn about whale sounds in the Mediterranean Sea.
You can listen here to audio files and see visual representations of the sounds of different cetacean species: Sperm Whales, Fin Whales, etc. All the sounds have been recorded with our SAMARUC passive acoustic recorder in the Spanish coastal waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
SAMARUC Underwater acoustic survey.
Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) surveys are appropriated for detection and monitoring of cetaceans and
anthropogenic noises. We are using the SAMARUC PAM system in a long-term campaign in the Cabrera Archipelago
Maritime National Park in the Balearic Islands (Spain).
