Joint Framework for Ocean Noise in the Atlantic Seas

JONAS addresses threats to biodiversity from underwater noise pollution on sensitive species in the NE Atlantic by streamlining ocean noise monitoring and risk management on a transnational basis. AA states need a consistent way to resolve this common transboundary challenge. Jonas will develop and pilot a noise-monitoring platform, harmonize technical approaches to MSFD and MSP requirements, and promote the adoption of quieter operational practices among users of the NE Atlantic marine space.
