Selection of 180 dB as the Upper Reference Point in the Risk Continuum for SURTASS LFA Sonar Signals

  • Published 2002

Abstract

Marine mammals rely on hearing for a wide variety of critical functions. Exposure to sounds that permanently affect their hearing ability poses significant problems for the survival and reproduction of these animals. Many human activities generate loud underwater sounds, and there is an urgent need for methods of estimating potential risk. The quest for a quantitative assessment of risk potential is complicated by scarce data in two areas:
