Title Discovery of Sound in the Sea Website.
Publication Date Sep 2011
Media Count 9p
Personal Author G. Scowcroft K. J. Vigness-Raposa
Abstract LONG-TERM GOALS: The long-term goal of this effort is to educate the public on the basic science of sound in the sea; how people and animals use underwater sound to accomplish many of the tasks for which we use light in air; and how sound in the ocean affects marine life. The products of this effort include an interactive on-line resource, a CD-ROM, and printed materials. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this effort is to develop and maintain resources that address the long-term goal. The resources include a website (Figure 1), an educational CD-ROM, a tri-fold educational pamphlet, and an informational 16- page booklet. APPROACH: Efforts have focused on enhancing and expanding the scientific content of the Discovery of Sound in the Sea website that was launched in November 2002. During the past nine years, Marine Acoustics, Inc. (MAI) and the University of Rhode Island s Office of Marine Programs (OMP) have developed a successful working relationship to create the website, an educational CD-ROM, and associated printed materials. These resources undergo regular updates and rigorous scientific review by a panel of scientists in the field, led by Drs. Peter Worcester (Scripps Institution of Oceanography), Jim Miller and Jacqueline Webb (University of Rhode Island), and Darlene Ketten (Harvard University Medical School and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution). MAI and OMP make all final decisions on the site content.
