A comprehensive review of the sources and impacts of different types of marine noise

Measuring devices such as ocean bottom seismometers and hydrophones designed to detect earthquakes pick up many other signals. These were previously ignored as background noise from unknown sources, but advanced technology now allows insights into the noise created from icebergs, ships, hydrothermal vents, whales, rain, marine engineering, and more.

Noisy Oceans: Monitoring Seismic and Acoustic Signals in the Marine Environment is a comprehensive guide to non-tectonic marine noise originating from different environmental, biological, and anthropogenic sources.

Volume highlights include:
* Overview of marine soundscapes and their sources
* Existing and new methods for studying acoustic signals
* Case studies from around the world
* Spans disciplines from geology and geophysicists to biology
* Explores the impacts and implications of marine noise

The American Geophysical Union promotes discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity. Its publications disseminate scientific knowledge and provide resources for researchers, students, and professionals.
