LowFreq

Project period: January 2008 - December 2010
Project leader: Olav Rune Godø

Sound pollution of the sea is an issue of increasing concern. Particularly will emission of low frequency sound, ranging very far, have the possibility to affect senses and communication of fish and marine mammals.

The main objectives of LowFreq is to study performance of navy sonars on the new Norwegian frigates and a parametric sonar (TOPAS) in long range biomass testing as well as testing how such systems affect the behavior of fish and marine mammals.
