This is the Library Database of the E&P Sound & Marine Life JIP.  It provides access to Project Reports, Peer-Reviewed Publications, Factsheets, Videos and other outputs from JIP-funded, or co-funded, research.

The Database allows full flexibility to search for entries by, for example: research category, keyword/topic, organisation or author/Principal Investigator.   The File Link launches a ‘pdf’ version of the document.   In the event that a peer-reviewed publication is currently not ‘open access’, the link provides access to the abstract.

Please follow this link to access the Database.

The latest updates to the Library Database include:
