Greetings. Appologies to those of you who will receive duplicate emails due to cross-posting.
I am delighted to invite you as our Speaker/Delegate to 3rd Oceanoise Asia (Oceanoise
Asia 2020) on November 09-13, 2020 at Sanya, China.
This Oceanoise Asia symposium is the Asian version of Oceanoise conference.
was initiated by marine biologists and marine acousticians from Mainland China, Japan, and Chinese Taipei, which aims
to bring together
Asian leading experts in
underwater noise measurement, modeling and mapping, physiological and behavioural effects on marine organisms, as well as policy, regulation, and mitigation procedures that address ocean noises.
Oceanoise Asia 2020 is the third
symposium, and will be co-hosted
by the Institute of Deep-sea Science and Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the
International Society of Zoological Sciences, in Sanya, Hainan Province, China.
The last Oceanoise Asia was held in Hakodate, Hokkaido, Japan, in 2018.
participants include researchers, students, persons engaged in environmental impact assessments, and marine conservation at government and private facilities.
In recent decades, extensive marine engineering works are occurring in Asian waters,
where there is high marine biodiversity. Maritime constructions, offshore wind power installations, underwater mining, shipping, fisheries, and geological studies produce a wide variety of noises in the water. Cetaceans, pinnipeds, fishes, cephalopods and
crustaceans could be affected by the exposure to underwater noises. At this moment, baseline information on ecologically important marine organisms, and proposed scientific standards of noise impact on these marine organisms is still quite limited within Asian
waters. Reliable ocean noise measurements and an evaluation of its effects in coastal and deep waters are needed. The Oceanoise Asia symposium focuses on existing and available knowledge on physiology, ecology and behavior of ecologically important marine
organisms, physical and biological sound measurement and biological noise response observations. The 3rd Oceanoise Asia aims at promoting scientific research and awareness about the impacts of noise on the marine organisms in Asian waters.
Keywords: soundscape, underwater ambient noise, man-made noise, noise impacts, physiology, ecology and behavior of marine organisms.
I would be very happy to have you present at this symposium and will be pleased to hear
your thoughts and opinions in this direction.
Please kindly revert to me ) with your confirmation and i look forward
to seeing you here.
Registration fees will be exempt if a registration
form with an abstract is submitted before 31 July 2020. Otherwise, a registration fee of CNY 1000 (RMB) (approximately USD 150) will be required.
