PostHeaderIcon ESOMM Conference

ACCOBAMS will be represented at the 4th International Conference on the Effects of Sound in the Ocean on Marine Mammals (ESOMM) that will be organized by TNO and hosted by the Royal Netherlands Navy, at the historical base in downtown Amsterdam.

The 4th ESOMM conference follows the tradition of the previous ESOMM conferences in Lerici, Italy, organized by the NATO Undersea Research Centre (NURC).

The objective of the Conference is to aim for a discussion during the conference involving both science and policy aspects related to among others quantifying, qualifying and mitigating the effects of sound in the ocean on Marine Mammals, with a clear focus on the use of naval sonar. Nevertheless, it is our aim to address other sound sources as well.

In all its 24-year history, the ECS has never held a workshop devoted to pollution and its effects upon marine mammals. During the ECS 25th Conference, they therefore propose such a workshop, bringing together specialists in research on pollutants, their current levels throughout marine areas of Europe, long-term trends, and biological effects upon cetaceans at the individual and population level. The workshop has the support of the two international conservation agreements – ASCOBANS and ACCOBAMS.

Workshop date: Sunday 20th March 2011, 08:00-16:30
