The IOA London Branch group virtually welcomed Dr Jake Ward to their evening meeting in Aug 2020. Jake shared his presentation on the JOMOPANS: Joint Monitoring Programme for Ambient Noise in the North Sea a project which he has been involved with.
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. The output of which will be the provision of 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. Jake’s presentation focused on the standardisation of terminology, the deployment methods and data processing.
