Underwater sound: the legislative battleground
Underwater noise pollution is a growing threat, but are "quiet zones" the answer?
International noise standards: measuring and enforcing quieter seas for environmental protection.
Challenges for sonar operations: adapting to "Noise Quiet" zones, maintaining defense capabilities.
Opportunities for collaboration: transferring noise reduction technologies to commercial shipping.
Standardisation efforts: ensuring fair and effective regulations across the globe.Classification societies and noise notations: incentivising quieter commercial vessels.
