Underwater Sounds - Sonic Perspectives on Oceanic Ecologies
Half day seminar by Sound Environment Centre at Lund University & Åsa Stjerna - PhD and Sound Artist, KMH Royal College of Music, Stockholm
Increased human activity in and around the seas - such as coastal wind turbines, increased maritime transportation, and the exploitation of the Arctic - have over the past decades had a major impact on marine underwater environments. For this seminar we are inviting researchers of various disciplines to give us a status on, how this activity effects marine life and underwater ecologies. There is no doubt, that this topic of research is of great importance in the future protection of the oceans around us. None the less, it is also an area of research that, to a large extend, is still unknown for the general public.
