This report on underwater noise in the South marine plan areas has been prepared by ABP Marine Environmental Research Ltd (ABPmer) on behalf of the Marine Management Organisation (MMO). Quantification of underwater noise is a current and evolving topic in marine environmental science that is relevant to marine plan policy development. It is recognised that there is currently insufficient data to support a quantitative assessment of underwater noise levels and its impact on the natural environment at marine plan or national scale. This research and development work represents an initial step in addressing the recognised gap in availability of consistent plan scale indicative map(s) of anthropogenic underwater noise distribution and levels to support marine planning. A data and literature review of academic journals, government, non-government organisations and industry reports identified a wide range of marine noise sources. It found vessel traffic, fishinthis can be presented as g, a.....
