Dear all,
I am in the process of compiling a review of worldwide regulations
relating to minimising the disturbance of marine mammals during seismic
surveys. This is part of a wider project between the University of
Plymouth and industrial partner Westland GeoProjects, aiming to
understand and reduce the disturbance of marine mammals during seismic
exploration. The review is intended to inform industrial partners,
existing MMOs and marine science students who may be potential MMOs. I
have accessed regulations and reports from the UK, USA, CANADA and
AUSTRALIA. If anyone can help with providing any regulations or report
documents on this subject from other countries, this would be much
appreciated. Any information can be sent electronically to me at either:
rossco at wgeo.co.uk or ross.compton at plymouth.ac.uk
Many thanks for your help with this,
Ross Compton
