Dear colleagues, 

I would like to draw your attention to the following report that has just been published by COWRIE (collaborative offshore wind research into the environment):

Thomsen, F. , Lüdemann, K., Kafemann, R. and Piper, W. (2006). Effects of wind farm noise on marine mammals and fish, 62 pp. 

This study on the "Effects of offshore wind farm noise on marine mammals and fish", based on an earlier report in German as part of EIA work for windfarms in German waters, comprises an assessment of noise during construction / operation based on measurements from across Europe, the transmission of the noise and definition of zones of noise influence (audibility, response, masking, Temporary Threshold Shift) on marine mammals and fish. The report provides the most recent review of studies undertaken in this area of research and will enable COWRIE to identify further work required to complement the existing programme of work being carried out by Subacoustech at UK offshore windfarm sites.

The report is available as pdf at the COWRIE website (www.offshorewindfarms.co.uk/) under 'news'. In case of any problems, contact me.
