New Research Fund

By now, many in the bio-acoustics community have heard of a new research effort in 
underwater acoustics called the "Joint Industry Programme on Sound and Marine 
Life", funded by several oil- and gas-producing companies.  We support research on 
the various sounds produced by offshore industry operations, their possible effects on 
marine animals, and mitigation measures. We formally began in May 2006, and this week we 
are opening our website which is intended primarily for researchers.  Please visit   The site contains all the information an applicant for 
research support would need, from the program's history and objectives to its policies on 
animal care and publication, plus application procedures.  The fund presently stands at 
about $8 million per year and is open to researchers in any part of the world.  Proposal 
selection follows the practices used by public funding agencies.  Our goal is to produce 
high quality research papers in peer-reviewed

Please visit us.

Roger L. Gentry, Ph.D., Programme Manager
