Dear All,

We would like to draw your attention to an initiative from the Laboratory
of Applied Bioacoustics (LAB) of the Technical University of Catalonia, to
present, explain and promote the research conducted on the effects of
artificial noise on the marine environment.

We have designed an interface (www.sonsdemar.eu; Catalan for 'sounds of
the sea') where the visitors, in addition to learn about the acoustic
processes in cetaceans, will be able to listen to natural, biological and
anthropogenic sound sources that are nowadays co-existing in the oceans,
experiencing the need of research to get back to a natural acoustic
balance of the seas.

With kind regards,

The Sons de Mar Staff
