Joint Monitoring Programme for Ambient Noise North Sea (JOMOPANS)

The aim of this project is to develop a framework for a fully operational joint monitoring
programme for ambient noise in the North Sea. Output will be the tools necessary for
managers, planners and other stakeholders to incorporate the effects of ambient noise in their
assessment of the environmental status of the North Sea, and to evaluate measures to improve
the environment.
