Steve Sorenson is the Vice President of Membership at INCE-USA. We spoke with Steve recently to get to know him better and allow him to share his experiences with other INCE members. Here is what Steve had to say.
INCE is saddened to note the recent passing of our colleague, James Dvorak Chalupnik. Link through to a page with more information on the life and career of this outstanding contributor to the world of acoustics and noise control.
In this episode of The Noise News, a podcast brought to you by NNI, our host Eoin King chats with Patricia Davies, Victoria Cerami, Lily Wang and Steve Sorenson. Our guests join us in a panel discussion about women in noise control and their experiences so far in the industry. Make sure to tune in to this episode!

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.
