Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Year of the quiet ocean: Emerging ocean listening network will study seas uniquely quieted by COVID

(Terry Collins Assoc) Scientists have identified 200+ non-military ocean hydrophones worldwide and hope to pool their recorded data into a "2020 quiet ocean assessment" and to monitor future ocean soundscapes -- capturing the signals of whales and other marine life while assessing the noise levels of human activity.Combined with other sea life monitoring tools and methods such as animal tagging the work will help reveal the extent to which noise in "the Anthropocene seas" impacts ocean species.
