Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting
session: ME007 - Exploring and Characterizing Deep and Coastal Ocean
Soundscapes <https://agu.confex.com/agu/osm20/prelim.cgi/Session/84757>.
will be accepted until September 11. Please share this announcement with
other interested colleagues and students. Apologies for cross-posting, let
us know if you have any questions.

The session description is below:

The ocean is vast, sparsely charted, deep, and underexplored. The physical
properties of the ocean enable sound waves to propagate and be detected
over very long, at times even ocean basin-scale distances, and thus sound
can be a powerful tool to detect and observe deep-ocean processes. For
example, major storm events can significantly raise ambient sound levels in
the deep ocean. Many marine animals, from shrimp to whales, use sound to
communicate and assess their environment. The combination of biological,
geological, physical, and anthropogenic sounds together make up the marine
“soundscape”. Exploring marine soundscapes can lead to a better
understanding of the ocean and characterization of these marine
environments, as well as providing a measurement of current sound levels to
compare against predicted future increases in anthropogenic sound sources.
Further, ocean sound was recently identified as an essential ocean variable
by the Global Ocean Observing System. This session aims to explore the
holistic use of sound to characterize deep and coastal ocean areas, as well
as discuss potential gaps in current understanding, and new ways to
interpret and quantify ocean soundscapes.
