Please post the below announcement (DOSITS is a valuable resource for  
marine mammal acoustics).  Apologies for cross postings.

The Discovery of Sound in the Sea (DOSITS) Project introduces the  
science and uses of underwater sound and provides easy, efficient  
access to timely peer reviewed content on the effects of underwater  
sound on marine animals.  The DOSITS team, led by Gail Scowcroft of  
the URI Office of Marine Programs (OMP), announces the launch of a  
newly redesigned website (http://www.dosits.org) that takes advantage  
of the advances in web technology since the website was originally  
launched in November 2002.

The redesigned DOSITS site offers a much more interactive learning  
environment. The front page uses Flash-based interactives that allow  
users to quickly immerse themselves in exciting content, from the  
songs of humpback whales to interviews with cutting-edge scientists to  
the use of acoustics to measure waves. Interactives have also been  
created for the site's galleries, including an extensive Audio Gallery  
and Scientist Gallery. These two sections contain a variety of  
multimedia resources.

Please visit the site and let us know what you think via our public  
input survey (in the left hand navigation on the DOSITS homepage).  To  
receive more information about the Discovery of Sound in the Sea  
Project, please contact OMP’s Holly Morin via email  
(hmorin at gso.uri.edu) or by phone (401-874-6414).
