Concurrent Sessions C: Tracking and Evaluating Passage - Form, Function and Structuring Large Multi-Year Database of Acoustic Monitoring (MyDAM)

Abstract
A multi-year database of acoustic monitoring (MyDAM) is a relational database management system under development to facilitate metadata analyses by providing rapid access to data from all previous project and monitoring efforts. The MyDAM incorporates data from fixed and mobile hydro acoustic system used to monitor fish passage and behavior amongst the dams of lower Federal Columbia River Power System (FCRPS) since 1996. In addition, the Juvenile Salmonid Acoustic Telemetry System (JSATS) cabled array and autonomous node systems have gathered data in the FCRPS to better understand fish passage and provide survival estimates since 2004. Past hydro acoustics data have included dam operations, in-river routes of passage, fish behavior, passage densities and rates, as well as performance metrics. The JSATS data augments the aforementioned measures by providing individually-based data detailing the species and condition of the fish, their behavior, and their approach depth. The MyDAM has the capability to incorporate historical data and new data (i.e., environmental, operations, biological, acoustical data) with an intermediary quality control processing, and hierarchical user access. This presentation focuses on the development and needs of information management systems based on basin-wide acoustic telemetry monitoring to facilitate spatiotemporal meta-data analyses to support management of the FCRPS. Ultimately, the MyDAM provides the ability to perform long-term inquiry and trend analyses, develop risk-assessment models, forecast environmental conditions for fish passage and behavior under climate change and treaty agreements, as well as relate juvenile salmon to adult returns.
