Underwater noise in the Arctic

PAME's State of Knowledge Review on Underwater Noise in the Arctic report provides a baseline understanding of underwater noise in Arctic regions, including ambient sound levels, underwater noise created by anthropogenic activities, and impacts of underwater noise on marine life, including marine mammals, fish, and invertebrates.

Main activities

  1. Improve understanding of underwater noise generated by shipping in the Arctic
  2. Develop operational and technological scenarios
  3. Share findings of this project to relevant Arctic Council and other multilateral fora
