I’m excited to announce the publication of my co-authored paper on “The Effects of Ship Noise on Marine Mammals—A Review” in Frontiers in Marine Science.
The number of vessels utilising the marine environment is on the rise, with a corresponding increase in noise pollution from this activity. But what are the effects of ship noise on marine mammals? We reviewed 154 scientific articles to document the species, areas, and effects studied. From this, we were able to identify common themes and important research gaps.
This was a hugely satisfying project and a delight to work on. One of the best parts of research is finding great people to work with, which was certainly the case here!
The paper is already receiving good reviews and the Altmetric score is soaring! I’m looking forward to seeing how this paper can help shape future research.
Nice to see river dolphins highlighted here as the species mostly likely impacted by ship noise and the least studied https://t.co/wv2NCuOGuZ

Very important new publication providing a full global picture of the effects of vessel noise on marine mammals – fascinating reading (and extremely helpful to those of us working on the legal issues of noise and vessel strikes!) https://t.co/Ig9fdlCiGg

Fantastic paper which highlights the importance of data collection in the marine environment. ..”it is not straightforward to translate acoustic recordings made in one environment to another..” https://t.co/K0GpdxUitH
