****apologies for cross postings****

The ocean is full of both natural and anthropogenic (human-made) sources of
sound. Much attention has been focused on anthropogenic sound sources in
the ocean and potential effects on marine mammals, fishes,
and invertebrates.

Regulators, decision makers, public affairs officers, industry
representatives, other members of the international regulatory community,
and others interested in underwater acoustics are invited to participate in
the *Discovery of Sound in the Sea (DOSITS)*
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.dosits.org&d=DwMFAw&c=dWz0sRZOjEnYSN4E4J0dug&r=JOrNtytRch_z3DSjtQDao1ePXGI6VzACNW5v0UqKIUM&m=Wa45HGxSFk3F8YptLVL3gg-wz35HduBFgq2w9__DyTg&s=E13Faah3TJm-4CmAX_6n-BUnklZyuP8aL7E1lAuGslU&e=>
 *free, four-part webinar series on anthropogenic underwater sound sources*.
The webinars will include an overview of anthropogenic sound sources,
including commercial shipping, pile driving, seismic sources, and
sonar.  Each webinar will last approximately 60 minutes and provide an
update on current research efforts along with a review of noise mitigation
measures. An extended period of facilitated discussion will also be
included at the end of each webinar.

Prior to each webinar, an outline of the presentation(s), with links to
relevant background content on DOSITS, will be made available. *Participants
are encouraged to review these outlines, as well as **archived webinars on
the potential effects of underwater sound on marine animals*

A
summary of questions asked, and their answers, will be posted online after
each webinar.

The first two webinars of this four-part series will take place in May 2019
and will focus on underwater sound associated with seismic sources, pile
driving, and wind turbines.  Subsequent webinars will take place in fall
2019 and will focus on commercial shipping, sonar, and echosounders.
