Impacts of noise and use of propagation models to predict the recipient side of noise (ENV.D.2/FRA/2012/2005) - Final Report
|J.F. Borsani, R. Faulkner, N.D. Merchant|
This report summarises the outcomes of the project in non-technical language, drawing on the six task-specific reports which are provided in the Supplementary Annexes for further information. Chapter 2 presents an assessment of knowledge gaps in the effects of noise on marine biota, while Chapter 3 briefly reviews current legislation and regulation relating to marine noise pollution. The following two chapters address acoustic modelling: in Chapter 4, the main outcomes of a review of acoustic propagation models are discussed, and Chapter 5 presents sound maps which were developed for the project. The main conclusions of the workshop are presented in Chapter 6, and the roadmap towards defining GES for noise is outlined in Chapter 7.
