The purpose of this workshop will be to gather information about low-cost, self-contained underwater acoustic recording systems that could be deployed more widely worldwide to help achieve the goals of the International Quiet Ocean Experiment (IQOE) and to contribute to measurements related to the Ocean Sound Essential Ocean Variable of the Global Ocean Observing System. The workshop will be held virtually and repeated several times to make participation easier for scientists and equipment developers from around the world.
The workshop will provide an update on the activities of the International Quiet Ocean Experiment (IQOE) in relation to the effects of ocean noise on marine organisms and will provide an opportunity for the broader ASA community to influence IQOE activities through discussions as part of the workshop. The agenda for the session will be posted on this site when it is available.
The workshop is co-sponsored by the Acoustical Society of America (see ASA Meeting Web site)
