Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Description
The Galician Tracking Network represents the first attempt to establish a long-term monitoring network of acoustic receivers in NW Spain. This project complement current initiatives in the area, like MOBEIA (see ETN network projects, Alonso-Fernández et al. 2019). The array was established as a result of the international project ATLAZUL (Interreg V-A España Portugal, POCTEP, 2014-2020). The array is composed by 6 fixed stations located along the Galician coast and installed in the platforms managed by the regional meteorological institution METEOGALICIA (https://www.meteogalicia.gal/). All these platforms are equipped with a set of oceanographic sensors (temperature, salinity, etc.). The array uses THELMA Biotel receivers (69 and 71 kHz). This array represents the unique permanent acoustic array deployed in a coastal ecosystems off NW Spain.
