Name Wave Energy Acoustic Monitoring
Funding Reference FCT - PTDC/ENR/70452/2006
Dates 2007-11|2010-10

The project aims at developing, testing and validating a monitoring system for determining underwater acoustic noise generated by wave energy-based generators and its impact in the sea fauna of. This study will be able to extend noise predictions to farms of wave generators with pre-determined configurations.
