Welcome to GLUBS

Connecting the World of Underwater Sound

What We Do

Sound Library

GLUBS connects existing underwater sound repositories, analysis tools and reference libraries at a single access point. Our goal is to utilize and build upon these resources to create a comprehensive tool for sound processing and investigation. Explore the sounds of the ocean and discover new research.

Automatic Call Detectors

GLUBS is a platform for developing machine learning algorithms to automatically detect and classify biological sounds. These tools can assist in identification of sound sources in user-provided datasets, expanding the accessibility of bioacoustics research and connecting recordings from all over the world. Join us in this exciting research endeavor.


GLUBS is a resource for researchers, managers, and citizen scientists to connect, share, and collaborate on underwater acoustics studies. Find collaborators for your project, share your data, and make new discoveries together.
