Presentation title: Passive Acoustic Study in Taiwan
Summary of the presentation: Recent years, due to the development of offshore wind farms in Taiwan, environmental impact assessment of the development is underway. Among all impact factors, underwater noise becomes a major concern for the offshore wind farm sites are very close to the habitats of Sousa chinensis (Chinese Humpback Dolphin). To assess the noise impact, underwater acoustic listening stations were deployed in the regions. These underwater acoustic measurements include one seven-year data collected before-during-after OWF installation enhance the understandings of the underwater soundscape in western Taiwan. A series of papers are published from the analysis of these huge data sets. This report presents these findings and future plan for better understanding of the bio-acoustic ecology in the west coastal waters of Taiwan. This work is supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology, Council of Agriculture, Ocean Affairs Council of Taiwan, ITRI, Unitech Inc., Formosa Plastics Group, Swancor Inc. since 2009.
Personal profile: Dr. Chi-Fang Chen received her Ph.D. in the Department of Ocean Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1991, and started her career as the faculty member of the Department of Naval Architecture of National Taiwan University from 1991 till now. (Department of Naval Architecture was renamed as Department of Engineering Science and Ocean Engineering in 2000). Her research focus and interests are underwater acoustics and passive acoustic monitoring (PAM). She is conducting passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) research in recognizing sounds from different species in the ocean which includes Sousa chinensis in offshore regions west of Taiwan. Her goal in the near future is to establish a PAM network in the west coast of Taiwan to monitor the endangered species, namely the Chinese White Dolphin (Sousa chinensis), and other marine lives. The PAM network is a major component in the integrated dolphin monitoring network, and is composed of fixed stations (bottom-mounted, moored hydrophones, or sonobuoys) and mobile platforms with acoustic payloads such as ASVs.
