Impacts of Anthropogenic Sound on Cetaceans

  title={Impacts of Anthropogenic Sound on Cetaceans},
  author={John A. Hildebrand},
Anthropogenic sound is created in the ocean both purposefully and unintentionally. The result is noise pollution that is high-intensity and acute, as well as lower-level and chronic. The locations of noise pollution are along well-traveled paths in the sea and particularly encompass coastal and continental shelf waters, areas that represent critical marine mammal habitat. The problem is one of isolation and a lack of awareness between humans who use the sea and marine mammals that inhabit the… CONTINUE READING
