109 Understanding the Nature of Underwater Sound
Show Notes

"In order to understand life in the ocean, we need to understand not just the forms of life, but also their environment, their very dynamic environment."
A conversation with John Ryan (Sr Research Specialist at MBARI) about the nature of underwater sounds. Presented by Longitude fellow Melisa Acimis

As part of our Longitudes of Imagination theme, we are exploring the roles of individuals, technologies and research in ocean science and space technology. In this series, the fellows share highlights from their conversations with scientists and the members of NOAA’s soundscape monitoring project at the U.S. Marine Sanctuaries. 

What are they hearing underwater? What are they measuring? Who are they? And What are we learning?
