The ocean is full of both natural and anthropogenic (human-made) sources of sound. Much attention has been focused on anthropogenic sound sources in the ocean and potential effects on marine mammals, fishes, and invertebrates.
Regulators, decision makers, public affairs officers, industry representatives, other members of the international regulatory community, and others interested in underwater acoustics are invited to participate in the Discovery of
Sound in the Sea (DOSITS) free, four-part webinar series on anthropogenic underwater sound sources. The webinars will include an overview of anthropogenic sound sources, including commercial shipping, pile driving, seismic sources,
and sonar. Each webinar will last approximately 60 minutes and provide an update on current research efforts along with a review of noise mitigation measures. An extended period of facilitated discussion will also be included at the end of each webinar.
The first two webinars of this four-part series will take place in May 2019 and will focus on underwater sound associated with seismic sources, pile driving, and wind turbines. Subsequent webinars will take place in fall 2019 and
will focus on commercial shipping, sonar, and echosounders.
