Danielle Cholewiak - Trying to get by in a noisy world: the challenges facing marine animals in an era of ever-increasing sound pollution
Click to hide meeting description

Human-produced noise is on the rise, including in our deepest waters and most pristine habitats. Many marine species rely on sound in their everyday lives, for everything from finding food, to finding mates, to finding the right place to live. How does noise in the ocean affect marine animals, and what can we do about it?  Learn how scientists use passive acoustic technology to listen in on the ocean and what these recordings can tell us about our marine environment - including right here in Massachusetts Bay.

Danielle has a BSc in both Biology and Resource Ecology and Management from the University of Michigan, and a PhD from Cornell University's Department of Neurobiology and Behavior and the Bioacoustics Research Program at the Laboratory of Ornithology. She worked as a postdoctoral scientist at Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, and is now a senior bioacoustician in NOAA's NEFSC Passive Acoustic Research Group working on towed array data collected from our vessel based stock assessment surveys as well as baleen whale acoustics and ocean noise research.
