The Discovery of Sound in the Sea (DOSITS) Team is pleased to announce that it will again facilitate a free, four-part webinar series on underwater sound for regulators, decision makers, public affairs officers, industry representatives, other members of the international regulatory community, and others interested in underwater acoustics. Each webinar is scheduled for approximately 60 minutes and will consist of one, focused presentation (topics listed below), followed by a period of facilitated discussion. Prior to each webinar, an outline of the presentation, with links to relevant background content on DOSITS, will be made available. Participants are encouraged to review these outlines, as well as archived DOSITS webinars, prior to each webinar. All webinars will be recorded and archived on the DOSITS website (Decision Makers Webinars).  

New to this year, the DOSITS Team will be offering a certificate of professional development, or the like, in accordance with webinar participation and other activities. Details on this is forthcoming, and will be shared with those registered for the webinar series.

The first two webinars of this four-part series will take place in May and June 2020; subsequent webinars will take place in fall 2020.
