JOMOPANS: Joint Monitoring Programme for Ambient Noise in the North Sea

Wednesday 19th August 2020 at 6 pm

Dr Jacob Ward is a Senior Research Scientist at the National Physics Laboratory (NPL) working in the Ultrasound and Underwater Acoustics group. NPL are one of 11 organisations contributing to JOMOPANS. The aim of the three-year project is to develop a framework for a fully operational joint monitoring programme for ambient noise in the North Sea. Output will be the tools necessary for managers, planners and other stakeholders to incorporate the effects of ambient noise in their assessment of the environmental status of the North Sea and to evaluate measures to improve the environment. Jacob’s presentation will focus on the standardisation of terminology, deployment, and data processing.
