Abstract

The European Marine Strategy Framework Directive requires European member states to develop strategies for their marine waters leading to programmes of measures that achieve or maintain Good Environmental Status (GES) in all European seas by 2020. An essential step towards reaching GES is the establishment of monitoring programmes, enabling the state of marine waters to be assessed on a regular basis.
A register for impulsive noise generating activities would enable assessment of their cumulative impacts on wide temporal and spatial scales; monitoring of ambient noise would provide essential insight into current levels and any trend in European waters.
