Technical Tour Details

 A Marine Mammal Perspective on Acoustic Environments—Research and Application in a Marine Park Setting

The tour will begin at Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute’s Animal Behavior and Senses laboratory, with an overview of research on the effects of human-made noise on animals and recently developed guidelines for limiting exposure. Tour attendees will learn how these guidelines relate to the real-world setting in a large marine park, SeaWorld San Diego. A private ride up the park’s skytower will give them a broad perspective on noise in this setting, and acoustic measurements related to park project environmental impact reports will be described, including discussion of ride acoustics and treatments in guest areas.
