Underwater Noise Measurements of Ships
Chair: Mike Bahtiarian
Vice Chair: D. J. Vendittis
Scope: Develop and maintain standards for the measurement of normalized underwater noise levels of ships (i.e. source levels) using commercial technology that can be implemented at any ocean site and does not require special acoustic underwater range. The scope does not include development of underwater noise limits.
Responsible for the following published standards:
- ANSI/ASA S12.64-2009/ Part 1: Quantities and Procedures for Description and Measurement of Underwater Sound from Ships- Part 1: General Requirements
