QUIETING TECHNOLOGIES WORKSHOP
February 25-27, 2013
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management will host a science workshop to explore "Quieting Technologies for Reducing Noise during Seismic Surveying and Pile Driving" from Feb. 25-27, 2013, in Silver Spring, Md. Government, industry, non-governmental (NGO), and academic experts from the United States and other countries will examine quieting technologies to reduce the impacts of noise generated during offshore exploratory seismic surveys, pile driving and vessels associated with these activities. BOEM is conducting the workshop in order to better inform its decisions related to conventional and renewable ocean energy exploration and development. BOEM plans to publish the results in a workshop report in 2013.
The meeting is open to the public, although capacity will be limited. Interested parties may register at this link.
What: Discussions on quieting technologies specifically for seismic surveys, pile driving and associated vessel noise and their applicability to renewable and conventional ocean energy exploration and development.
Why: To improve BOEM's understanding of emerging technologies for reducing noise associated with seismic surveys, pile driving and related vessels used in the offshore energy industry and their environmental impacts.
Where: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Silver Spring, Md.
When: Feb. 25-27, 2013
