As part of the 2019 Underwater Sound Sources Webinar Series, the Discovery of Sound in the Sea (DOSITS) Team will host two additional webinars in September and October 2019. These 60-minute webinars will focus on commercial shipping, sonar, and echosounders as underwater sound sources. Each webinar will provide an overview of the sound source, an update on current research efforts, and a review of noise mitigation measures. An extended period of facilitated discussion will also be included at the end of each webinar.

Prior to each webinar, an outline of the presentation(s), with links to relevant background content on DOSITS, will be made available. Participants are encouraged to review these outlines, as well as archived webinars on the potential effects of underwater sound on marine animals, before each sound source webinar. All webinars will be recorded and archived on the DOSITS website (Decision Makers Webinars).

The first webinar will be led by Michelle Sanders (Transport Canada) and will focus on commercial vessel noise as an underwater sound source.  This webinar will take place at 12:00 pm EDT on Wednesday, September 18, 2019.

The second webinar will be led by Frans-Peter Lam (TNO) and Kelly Benoit-Bird (Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute), and will focus on sonars and echosounders, respectively.  This webinar will take place at 12:00pm EDT on Thursday, October 10, 2019.
