Regulators, decision makers, public affairs officers, industry representatives, and other members of the international regulatory community have a high need for training materials on underwater acoustics as well as instructional resources that can be quickly accessed and viewed. To meet this need, the Discovery of Sound in the Sea (DOSITS) Team is facilitating a free, five-part webinar series for the international regulatory community on topics related to underwater sound.

Two webinars took place in 2015.  The first reviewed science of sound concepts, the second, sound production and reception in marine animals. Both of these webinars have been archived to the DOSITS website ( and are available for review.  PDFs of webinar presentations, as well as full webinar summaries, with associated DOSITS links, are also available for download. Note: you do not need to register to view archived webinars and their associated materials.

The third webinar in this 5-part series, and first webinar for 2016, will take place on Wednesday, March 16, 2016, at 12:00 pm (U.S. East Coast time).  Dr.'s Dorian Houser and Brandon Southall will review the potential effects of underwater sound on marine mammals.

Interested individuals must register in advance for this webinar.  To register please visit:
