The National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP) has approved the Atlantic Deepwater Ecosystem Observatory Network (ADEON) (see press release). Jennifer Miksis-Olds of the University of New Hampshire is the leader of the project. The study will deploy seven deep-water hydrophone moorings from Florida to Virginia to monitor the soundscapes of this region and provide insights into the effects of ocean sound on marine organisms. IQOE provided a letter of endorsement for this project because of its potential contributions to IQOE objectives.
