Antarctic's Siren Call: The Sound of Icebergs
Scientists at the Cooperative Institute for Marine Resources Studies (CIMRS) are investigating sounds generated by icebergs in the Southern Ocean and their potential to affect marine animals and ecosystems. While the steady increase in global shipping traffic has been identified as a primary cause of rising ocean noise level, the disintegration of large icebergs was found to be another significant noise source that influences the soundscape of the southern hemisphere.
