NOISE-CON Plenary:  Underwater Acoustic Noise Effects On Marine Mammals in the Northern Gulf of Mexico

NOISE-CON Plenary: Underwater Acoustic Noise Effects On Marine Mammals in the Northern Gulf of Mexico

The Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill starting in April 2010 was the largest marine oil spill in history. Arguably, some of the greatest impact was absorbed by the marine animals in the area. Fortunately, three years before the spill The Littoral Acoustic Demonstration Center (LADC) had conducted two-week visual and acoustic surveys of marine mammal activities near the DWH spill site, giving LADC a unique pre-spill baseline dataset of marine mammal activity and anthropogenic soundscapes near the oil spill site. LADC has returned to those same survey sites to repeat underwater acoustic recordings, gathering data to support comparisons of pre- and post-spill estimates of the marine mammal populations in the vicinity of the event based on their acoustic activity. These results including noise analyses for the same areas will be presented by Dr. Juliette W. Ioup from the University of New Orleans in a keynote address titled "Underwater Acoustic Noise Effects On Marine Mammals in the Northern Gulf of Mexico" at INCE's NOISE-CON online conference on November 19, 2020 at 11 am ET.
