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of these webinars have been archived to the DOSITS website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/>) and are
available for review*. *PDFs of webinar presentations, as well as full
