Dear All,


We would like to remind you that the deadline for submitting abstracts for
the session on Marine Acoustics at the forthcoming 2006 Ocean Sciences
Meeting is fast approaching.  The 13th Ocean Sciences Meeting, a joint
meeting of ASLO, TOS and AGU, will be held 20-24 February 2006 in Honolulu,
Hawaii.  The last day for electronic submissions is Thursday 20 October at
<http://www.agu.org/meetings/os06/> http://www.agu.org/meetings/os06/.  


The aims and scope of the session are as follows:


Marine Acoustics (OS-108)


>From the use of hydroacoustic monitoring to detect and locate submarine
earthquakes and volcanic activity to navigation cues for young reef fish
finding their way home marine acoustics is a rapidly expanding area of
research and development. Increasing concerns of the effects of underwater
noise, both anthropogenic and natural, on the marine environment are raising
marine acoustics to the forefront of scientific research and to government
policy and legislation. This session will include the following:


*                    Acoustic tomography for water mass monitoring and
climate research

*                    Acoustic techniques for habitat classification, fish
and plankton abundance and biomass modelling

*                    Acoustic techniques advancing marine archaeology

*                    Seafloor acoustics, mapping topography and military
surveying for vessels and mines

*                    Acoustic remote sensing of the marine environment

*                    Underwater acoustic communication and navigation,
people and animals

*                    Advances in acoustic technologies

*                    The effect of anthropogenic and natural noise on marine

When submitting your abstracts, please use the session code: OS-108.  If you
know of anyone else who may be interested in this symposium, please feel
free to pass on this information.  We hope to have a good representation of
the coral reef research community in this session, and look forward to
seeing you there.
