The Ocean

Harbour porpoise

There are numerous interesting websites about the marine world and underwater noise. At this page and on our Facebook page, we try to highlight interesting news in this topic. At the Facebook page, Gadus de Cod takes you on a tour through his aquatic neighborhood. Take a moment and explore some of the sites and read the news.

Listening to the ocean sound is fun, check out http://www.listentothedeep.com/acoustics/index.html and you can hear whales, ships and earthquakes. But there is no listening station in the Baltic Sea; we have to do something about that! …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. Some people actually try to spy on us in the bedroom with hydrophones! Isn’t that against any law? http://capeandislands.org/post/how-acoustic-monitoring-could-help-protect-cod-stocks?utm_referrer

It is easy to get lost. Here is a list with endangered fish, take a good look before buying fillets. “Unfortunately I’m listed”/Yours GdC. http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/campaigns/oceans/seafood/red-list-of-species/#a1

There are many ways to visit my world, this is one of them! http://www.whoi.edu/page.do?pid=8422

Take a look at this:
Webcast: Marine Mammals and Military Sonar. Brandon Southall, SEA Inc. and University of California Santa Cruz, will be presenting “Marine Mammal Responses to Simulated Military Sonar: Southern California Behavioral Re…sponse Study” on Tuesday, March 12 at noon (4 pm GMT) at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. The talk will be webcast and can be viewed at: http://www.mnh.si.edu/video/live.html Brandon’s talk will be posted later, a link to his talk will be available at: http://vertebrates.si.edu/mammals/index.html SAMBAH is a cool project that deals with harbor purpoises in the Baltic. The aim is to estimate the purpoises density by using 300 sensors. THREE HUNDRED! http://www.sambah.org/Methods.htm

My cod cousins in the North Atlantic lives in a really noisy environment as shown by the NOAA SoundMap. The BIAS project will do similar thing in the Baltic Sea but in much higher resolution and based on real underwater measurements so my brothers and sisters knows where there is peace and quiet. http://www.st.nmfs.noaa.gov/cetsound/sound.html
