  • Human use of the Earth’s oceans has steadily increased over the last century resulting in an increase in anthropogenically produced noise. This noise stems from a variety of sources including commercial shipping, oil drilling and exploration, scientific research and naval sonar. Sonar (for sound navigation and ranging) is a technique that uses sound propagation (usually underwater) to navigate, communicate or to localize: sonar may be used as a means of acoustic location (acoustic location in… CONTINUE READING
