WP041: SCAR Report on Marine Acoustics and the Southern Ocean
This paper provides recommendations arising from discussions at an international workshop on Marine Acoustics and the Southern Ocean, which was held in Cadiz, Spain, in January 2006. The purpose of the Cadiz workshop was to review improvements in knowledge and understanding of the interactions between marine mammals and noise generated by human activities in the Southern Ocean, as well as improving the original risk assessments for particular equipment types and considering the effectiveness of recommended mitigation measures.
