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 
Ltd, UK.

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.

The book is available now for pre-order from the links below. If
