We are delighted to announce “HKIQEP – Technical Seminar On Underwater Acoustic And The Application Of The Hydrophone To Assess The Impact To Marine Mammals” will be held on 29 October 2018 (Monday.)
Ocean occupies 70% of earth and is the largest ecosystem where living organisms inhabits. As electromagnetic wave cannot propagate through water due to water’s high permittivity and conductivity, sound become the major means for communication in ocean. Marine mammals have evolved to capitalize on the efficiency with which sound energy travels through water. Anthropogenic and natural sound sources contribute to ocean ambient noise, which can interfere with the use of this sensory modality by marine animals. Anthropogenic noise sources have been increasing steadily over recent decades largely due to coastal population growth, increased global transportation, and offshore industrialization. Understanding the potential impacts of anthropogenic noise requires the establishment of ambient acoustic baselines and documentation of individual marine mammals’ response to various kind of noise. Further, strategies of protection against harmful anthropogenic noise to marine mammals need to be developed. In this presentation, technologies to establish the ambient acoustic baselines and measures to protect marine mammals against anthropogenic noise will be explored.
