NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- Have you ever wondered what the depths of the ocean truly sound like to the multitudes of marine life who call the ocean their home? As part of ExplorOcean's monthly lecture series, on May 29, 2014 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Dr. Ana irović will discuss the significant increase in background noise levels across the world's oceans and the important ramifications it may have on various marine organisms.
irović is a marine bioacoustician at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, Calif. A native of Croatia, she earned a B.A. in creative studies with a biology emphasis from the University of California Santa Barbara and a Ph.D. in oceanography at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. As a researcher at the school's marine physical laboratory, irović's expertise focuses on marine biacoustics, especially the use of acoustic methods and technologies to promote a better understanding of endangered marine species. With the increase in human use of the ocean, background noise levels have risen dramatically and this increase might have important effects on whales, fish, and other marine mammals that rely on sounds to navigate, find food, and search for mates, among other biological needs. irović has logged more than 300 days of sea time, predominantly in the Southern Ocean.
Tom Pollack, ExplorOcean's CEO, notes: "We're proud to welcome Dr. Ana irović to our ExplorOcean lecture series. To have such high-level speakers as Dr. irović contribute to our monthly lecture series enriches our programs and our commitment to ocean literacy. Her conversation on the rise in ocean background noise levels is a timely subject and will certainly resonate with our members concerned about the future ocean environment."
The lecture is hosted by ExplorOcean at 600 East Bay Ave., Newport Beach, Calif. It is free to members and $15 per talk for non-members. To register, or for more information, visit http://explorocean.org/education/lecture-series/.
