HOW WE CONDUCT OUR RESEARCH
An essential first step of the JIP’s research is to better understand how sound propagates in the ocean. There are variety of factors including depth, temperature and salinity to name a few.

The JIP aims to understand the potential effects of sound from exploration and production activities on the physiology and hearing of different types of marine animals.

The JIP aims to understand the non-physical effects of E&P sound on marine life behaviour over the course of their lives
Find out more about the Behavioural reactions and biological significant effects Projects
The JIP takes an active role in providing information to understand and reduce risk of potential impacts of exploration and production sound on marine life.

The JIP has researched and developed a range of research tools that not only improve our studies, but have also advanced general scientific knowledge of marine animals.
