Joint Workshop Report: Predicting Sound Fields—Global Soundscape Modelling to Inform Management of Cetaceans and Anthropogenic Noise

April 12, 2019

Report with recommendations for sponsoring international organizations and/or their science advisory groups to support the development and implementation of soundscape modelling and mapping tools needed to make informed management decisions.

International experts from across the world came together to discuss regional and ocean-basin scale underwater sound field mapping techniques to provide support for decision makers seeking to characterize, monitor, and manage the potential impacts of chronic or cumulative anthropogenic noise on marine animals. This report includes the detailed information from that meeting.
