Dear MARMAM Colleagues,
We are pleased to announce that our book is now available for pre-order:
Todd, VLG, Todd, IB, Gardiner, JC, and Morrin, ECN (2014): Marine Mammal
Observer and Passive Acoustic Monitoring handbook. Pelagic Publishing
The 'Marine Mammal Observer and Passive Acoustic Monitoring Handbook' is
the ultimate instruction manual for mitigation measures to minimise
man-made acoustical and physical disturbances to marine mammals from
industrial and defence activities.
Based on more than two decades of offshore experience, and a decade of
supplying MMO and PAM services (commercial and scientific), the Handbook
is a long-overdue reference guide that seeks to improve standards
worldwide for marine operations such as seismic and drilling
exploration, wind farm piling, civil engineering, dredging,
rock-dumping, and hydrographical surveys. By popular request, this
manual will also form an accompaniment to MMO and PAM courses.
The Handbook consolidates all aspects of this discipline into one easily
accessible resource, to educate all stakeholders (e.g. MMOs, PAM
operators, suppliers, recruitment agencies, clients, contractors,
regulators, NGOs, consultants, scientists, academia and media),
regardless of experience.
Topics include worldwide legislation, compliance, anthropogenic noise
sources and potential effects, training, offshore life, visual and
acoustic monitoring (theory and practice), marine mammal distribution,
hearing and vocalisations, and report writing.
Advice is provided on implementing sensible and practical mitigation
techniques, appropriate technologies, data collection, client and
regulator liaison, and project kick-off meetings.
A foreword is provided by Dr Phillip J. Clapham.
