The purpose of this document is to provide guidance on the available procedures and methodologies for measuring underwater noise from surface ships. For the purposes of this document underwater noise is meant the sound generated by a ship as measured in terms of sound pressure levels. Current interest in surface ship underwater noise is driven by the recognition of the importance of anthropogenic (human-made) noise in the ocean and its environmental impact. In addition, the ship underwater noise has an influence on the operaton of hydracoustic equipment. The current gudelines only address the measurement of underwater ship noise and does not comment on the impact of such noise......
