A review and inventory of fixed installation passive acoustic monitoring methods and technologies (revised with appendix 26 May 2010)
In summary, this report includes a review of three main types of fixed PAM systems and the detection/classification algorithms that can be used to efficiently process...
A review and inventory of unmanned aerial systems for detection and monitoring of key biological resources and physical parameters affecting marine life during offshore exploration
JIP Sound and Marine Life
A literature review, internet searches, and communications with personnel working with unmanned aerial systems (UAS) were used to identify the capabilities of UAS throughout the world....
The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
Passive acoustic detection is being increasingly used to monitor visually cryptic cetaceans such as Blainville’s beaked whales (Mesoplodon densirostris) that may be especially sensitive to underwater...
Underwater noise levels of pile-driving in a New Zealand harbour, and the potential impacts on endangered Hector's dolphins
Marine Pollution Bulletin
Impact pile-driving generates loud underwater anthropogenic sounds, and is routinely conducted in harbours around the world. Surprisingly few studies of these sounds and their propagation are...

Discovery of Sound in the Sea - Determining mitigation and monitoring through the ecological risk assessment process.
UACE 2019, Crete
At this moment, there are no international standards for monitoring ambient noise in the ocean. Such standards would require consensus on a number of topics: (i)...
The identification of discrete and persistent areas of relatively high harbour porpoise density in the wider UK marine area.
Joint Nature Conservation Committee
For the further development of the UK’s Natura 2000 network, a network of nature protection areas established under the EU Birds and Habitats Directive, identifying discrete...
Journal of Cetacean Research and Management
Observations undertaken during 201 seismic surveys in UK and adjacent waters were analysed to examine effects on cetaceans. Sighting rates, distance from the airguns and orientation...
