Noise and Marine Mammals
In order to provide unbiased information
about the important issue of marine mammals and marine noise, the
MARGINS Office will maintain this web page, posting links to relevant
noise and marine mammals. Please send suggestions for additional
links to the MARGINS Office.
Academic seismic research should never be a
threat to the survival of any species of marine mammals. At the same
time, research within the MARGINS Program may
yield crucial knowledge about understanding ecosystems under threat,
this research may therefore ultimately counteract environmental protection.
