Welcome to the SCATTN Project

The Southern California Acoustic Telemetry Tracking Network (SCATTN) is a collaborative group of researchers who use acoustic telemetry to study behavior of marine life in southern California. This particular technology works allows us to detect each other’s transmitters on our individual receivers, while while we pursue our own projects and study different animals to answer different questions. Therefore, by sharing information we can effectively learn even more about the movements of marine animals than we could alone. Since this offers such exciting opportunities for us as scientists, we thought the public would be equally excited to learn with us. We hope you enjoy the website and check out the track animator, current SCATTN projects, and animal biographies.
