Summary of findings: Assessment and Monitoring of Ocean Noise in Irish Waters

2 page summary of findings for STRIVE 120 - Assessment and Monitoring of Ocean Noise in Irish Waters, January 2014

Year: 2014

Sources of anthropogenic (man-made) ocean noise include noise emitted from activities such as shipping, seismic surveying, geophysical surveying, construction, oil drilling and production, dredging, sonar systems, acoustic deterrents and most recently from the construction and operation of renewable energy platforms.

STRIVE 120 - Assessment and Monitoring of Ocean Noise in Irish Waters

STRIVE 120 - Suzanne Beck, Ian O'Connor, Simon Berrow, Joanne O'Brien, January 2014

Year: 2014

Sources of anthropogenic (man-made) ocean noise include noise emitted from activities such as shipping, seismic surveying, geophysical surveying, construction, oil drilling and production, dredging, sonar systems, acoustic deterrents and most recently from the construction and operation of renewable energy platforms. Anthropogenic ocean noise can elicit a range of physical, physiological and behavioural effects on marine animals.

STRIVE 101 - Summary of Findings

STRIVE 101 - Summary of Findings: Flow Photochemistry – A GREEN technology with a bright future , December 2013

Year: 2013

Currently, for every 1kg of active pharmaceutical product produced between 25 and 100kg of waste is generated. This project looks at new technologies that reduce water and energy requirements, offering cost savings and improved product yield, with less waste gnerated.
