Hello MARMAM,


The Disturbance Effects of Noise on the Harbour Porpoise Population in the
North Sea (DEPONS) model investigates the potential effects of wind farm
construction noise on Harbour Porpoise. The research programme has been
running since 2012 and is now coming to an end with Version 2.0 of the
model launched on January 21st, 2019. The DEPONS team warmly invites you to
view and participate in the two DEPONS Webinars.

WEBINAR 1 - THE DEPONS STORY; UNDERWATER NOISE, HARBOUR PORPOISE, AND THE
OFFSHORE WIND INDUSTRY

This webinar occurred on January 21st, 2019, but was recorded and can be

The first webinar presented the subject of underwater noise and offshore
wind. It explored the context of the DEPONS programme and how it has
progressed our understanding and management of the impact of noise on
harbor porpoises.  It included presentations by Jesper Kyed Larsen
