Regulators, decision makers, public affairs officers, industry
representatives, and other members of the international regulatory
community have a high need for training materials on underwater acoustics as
well as instructional resources that can be quickly accessed and viewed. To
meet this need, the *Discovery of Sound in the Sea (DOSITS)
<http://www.dosits.org> **Team is facilitating a free,
five-part webinar series for the international regulatory community on
topics related to underwater sound.*

Two webinars took place in 2015.  The first reviewed science of sound
concepts, the second, sound production and reception in marine animals. *Both
of these webinars have been archived to the DOSITS website
(**http://www.dosits.org/resources/all/decisionmakers/ircwebinar/
<http://www.dosits.org/resources/all/decisionmakers/ircwebinar/>) and are
available for review*.  *PDFs of webinar presentations, as well as full
webinar summaries, with associated DOSITS links, are also available for
download.* Note: you do not need to register to view archived webinars and
their associated materials.

The third webinar in this 5-part series, and first webinar for 2016, will
take place on *Wednesday, March 16, 2016, at 12:00 pm* (U.S. East Coast
time).  Dr.'s Dorian Houser and Brandon Southall will review the *potential
effects of underwater sound on marine mammals.*
