PRACTICAL APPROACHES FOR REDUCING OCEAN NOISE ASSOCIATED WITH SEISMIC EXPLORATION

Workshop Two: ‘Practical Approaches for Reducing Ocean Noise Associated with Seismic Exploration’ intends to foster a productive setting for stakeholders across international governing bodies, industry leaders, non-governmental organizations, and academia to debate, break down barriers, and ultimately develop data-informed and technologically advanced solutions. The focal topics of this workshop will include current status and future directions in: (1) technological approaches for reducing noise impacts from seismic exploration (e.g., vibroseis, ‘low noise’ airguns; and (2) operational approaches for reducing noise impacts from seismic (e.g., minimizing airgun array size, reducing survey area, smart scheduling). This workshop will culminate by identifying and proposing opportunities for actionable next steps.

 

WORKSHOP ONE

PRACTICAL APPROACHES FOR REDUCING OCEAN NOISE ASSOCIATED WITH OFFSHORE RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT

Workshop One fostered a productive setting for stakeholders across international governing bodies, industry leaders, non-governmental organizations, and academia to debate, break down barriers, and ultimately develop data-informed and technologically advanced solutions. The workshop culminated by identifying and proposing opportunities for actionable next steps. GAMeON recommends the following actions: (1) develop a noise abatement technology decision aid; (2) establish a risk assessment protocol which evaluates potential impacts, guides informed monitoring approaches, identifies outstanding research questions, and meets legal requirements; and (3) build robust regulatory standards for noise reduction and attenuation.
