Last year Greenpeace sponsored a paper on the impacts of specific noises on marine mammals. This was really the first billable job that I did under the moniker of “Ocean Conservation Research” and gently pushed us into the waters.
The piece was originally written for the International Whaling Commission meeting last June. It has been embellished with some sound “hot links” and other features. It is not too technical and outlines some potential impacts of various types of sounds on marine mammals. It also includes some recommendations, some nice pictures, and a lot of citations.
If your reading pile is getting low, you can pick up the paper here:
Thanks to Greenpeace staffers John Hocivar for managing the project, and Michelle Frey for putting the embellished PDF together.
