HEAT LIGHT AND SOUND RESEARCH INC LA JOLLA CA
Pagination or Media Count:
To develop and validate a regional and global nowcast capability for ocean noise. The ambient noise field is, of course, a key part of the marine mammal habitat, and in turn can inform regulatory decisions by conservationists. Eventually this system will be coupled to global oceanographic models to provide hindcasts, nowcasts, and forecasts of the time-evolving soundscape. In terms of the types of sound sources, we will focus initially on commercial shipping and seismic exploration. As the research evolves we will gradually expand the capability to include many other types of sources.
