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.

Water Framework Directive – The Application Of Mathematical Models As Decision-Support Tools (2002-W-DS-11) Final Report

Final Report (2002-W-DS/11-M1)- Irvine et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

Identifies and reviews many situations where mathematical modelling can be a useful tool to assist in the understanding of hydrological and chemical transport and processes that occur in catchments, and the ecological response to anthropogenic alterations that affect them.

Year: 2013

Identifies and reviews many situations where mathematical modelling can be a useful tool to assist in the understanding of hydrological and chemical transport and processes that occur in catchments, and the ecological response to anthropogenic alterations that affect them.

Endocrine Disruptors In The Irish Aquatic Environment

Synthesis Report - ERTDI Report 32 - Tarrant et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

A study that asks whether Irish rivers contain estrogenic compounds. If so, at what concentrations? Are these levels likely to pose a threat to aquatic ecosystems, particularly wild fish? Is there a risk to drinking water supplies?

Nutrient Levels And The Zebra Mussel Population In Lough Key

ERTDI Report 34 - Synthesis Report - Lucy et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

A study to quantify the total number and biomass of zebra mussels and to assess any changes to the population during the course of the study. Relevant water parameters and phytoplankton samples were analysed; direct ecological changes were also noted during the project.

Eutrophication From Agricultural Sources: A Comparison Of SWAT, HSPF And SHETRAN/GOPC Phosphorus Models For Three Irish Catchments

Synthesis Report - ERTDI Report 39 - Nasr et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

Report on the use of modelling non-point phosphorus loss from rural catchments in terms of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) objectives. The study focuses on physically based catchment-scale models which to date have not been applied to model phosphorus losses in Ireland.
