The Baltic Sea Information on Acoustic Soundscape
BIAS project was established in September 2012 to support a regional assessment of the underwater sound in the Baltic Sea. The project had five objectives. The first was to raise awareness among authorities and managers. The second was to establish a regional implementation. The third objective was to assess the level of underwater noise and to present the results as soundscape maps. The fourth objective was to establish regional standards and methodologies that will allow for cross-border handling of data and results and finally to implement regional tools for handling of underwater sound. The project was funded by EU-Life and coordinated by Peter Sigray (PI).
