The Ocean Soundscape

I created a series of illustrations showing the many sources of underwater noise and some of the existing mitigation measures for the Joint Framework for Ocean Noise in the Atlantic Seas (JONAS) project and the European Marine Board (EMB). The illustrations were commissioned for the EMB’s Future Science Brief 7: Addressing Underwater Noise in Europe: Current State of Knowledge and Future Priorities.
