DOSITS Sound in the Sea

DOSITS logoThe Discovery of Sound in the Sea website focuses on acoustics in the ocean. However, much of the information about sound in the ocean and underwater bioacoustics are true for all aquatic environments.

The Discovery of Sound in the Sea website has been developed by the University of Rhode Island's (URI) Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO) in partnership with Inspire Environmental of Newport, RI. Many other people contributed to the site, including independent scientific reviewers and ten Rhode Island school teachers. This site and its resources were developed and produced with funding from the U.S. Office of Naval Research, U.S. National Science Foundation, U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the E&P Sound & Marine Life Joint Industry Programme, and the International Association of Geophysical Contractors as well as other contributors.
