Given our projects in the North Sea and our work on Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and with the development of the iPCoD framework, we’re always particularly interested when new research comes to light on how porpoises respond to noise. Today is one such day of interest! […]

Seismic Surveys in Shallow Sites

By |2015-08-19T07:42:39+00:00August 19th, 2015|Categories: Publications|Tags: , , |0 Comments

The sound propagation of seismic airguns differs under a range of environmental conditions. Until now, few studies have examined the characteristics and propagation of seismic airgun sounds in shallow waters. To investigate this, researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark analysed airgun pulses in shallow water to determine the potential effects on small marine mammals. […]
