Aquatic Acoustic Archive Literature Library

Prof. Christine Erbe (Director, Centre for Marine Science & Technology, Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia) initiated this Library with funds from the IQOE and programming help from Jon Thompson.  Projects supported by many other funding agencies have enabled its growth.  Thanks to Prof. Erbe and all contributors and supporters.

Continued growth and value of the site depends on YOU.  Please let IQOE know of missing articles related to the field of noise impacts on aquatic life by emailing the article URL or .enw file to
