Aquatic Noise 2019: The Effects of Noise on Aquatic Life

Dates: July 7, 2019 - July 12, 2019

Location: Den Haag, The Netherlands

The focus of the conference is on marine animals and potential effects of sound, most all of the issues we discuss are just as germane to terrestrial animals. Indeed, we have found that often-times, research questions, approaches, and findings from animals in terrestrial environments (including humans) are far ahead of studies in the aquatic environment and have much to teach us. Thus, a highlight of our past few conferences has been to invite colleagues working on issues that are somewhat parallel to those that our participants deal with, but from a perspective of terrestrial animals, mammals, and even humans. Our focus is to broaden the perspective of our participants and help them see that their issues are far larger than the marine environment, and that we should be turning to terrestrial models to expand and focus our questions.
