The Chukchi Sea Acoustics Workshop (CSAW) was held February 9-10, 2009,
with the following purpose: Briefly review acoustic monitoring studies
in the Alaskan Arctic and determine priority research objectives for
acoustic monitoring of natural and anthropogenic underwater noise in the
Chukchi Sea from a marine ecosystem and marine mammal perspective.

 

A final report is now available that represents the proceedings of CSAW
and includes a compendium of recommendations from CSAW and a workshop
entitled Acoustic Ecology of Arctic Marine Mammals, held in advance of
the 18th Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine mammals in October
2009.

 

Participants of CSAW included representatives from the oil and gas
industry, Alaska Native marine mammal organizations, the North Slope
Borough, the State of Alaska, National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) Fisheries, the academic and private research
communities, and Minerals Management Service (MMS).

Division of Wildlife Conservation, through the Coastal Impact Assistance
Program (CIAP) provided funds for CSAW.
