“Breaking through the noise: Sound and Marine Life JIP sponsorsmarine research conference”

An International Association of Oil & Gas Producers website posted the above-titled article, which reads as follows:

“Sound and Marine Life Joint Industry Programme (JIP) recently sponsored the ‘Effects of Noise on Aquatic Life 2019 conference’, which took place in Den Haag in The Netherlands.

‘We were pleased to sponsor this conference as its key focus closely matches ours – scientific research into marine animals and potential effects of sound, and several of the JIP funded scientists presented their work,’ says Wendy Brown, IOGP Environment Director. ‘It provided us with the opportunity to promote a number of our recently published scientific research projects.’

Its series of fact sheet series which present a distilled and accessible description of several key issues addressed by the JIP was especially popular with attendees. These include:

  • BRAHSS: Behavioural Responses of Australian Humpback Whales to Seismic Surveys
  • Hearing in Arctic Seals
  • JIP Research Protecting Marine Life
  • Long-Term Acoustic Monitoring
  • Mysticete Hearing: Progressing the Science of Baleen Whale Hearing
  • PAMGUARD: Finding and tracking marine mammals using their sounds
  • Population Consequences of Acoustic Disturbance Fact Sheet
  • Quick Guide to the Data Maps
  • Understanding the potential impact of repeated exposure to seismic impulses on dolphin hearing

Its papers have recently appeared in peer-reviewed publications including Marine Pollution Bulleting, Journal of Acoustical Society of America, The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, The American Naturalist and Ecological Modelling.

All documents are freely and publicly available in the library of publications on the JIP web site www.soundandmarinelife.org

The JIP also recently sponsored ECO magazine’s special issue on Ocean Sound. The edition features ‘Advances to the science of sound and marine life’ (page 60), written by Dr. Gary H. Isaksen, Chair of the Executive Committee of the Sound and Marine Life program.”
