Abstract

Marine ecosystems are increasingly affected by underwater sounds. Growing
scientific and societal concerns have led to several international initiatives to measure the
environmental impact of ocean noise at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. The following
statements are formulated around the terms of reference of the International Quiet Ocean
Experiment (IQOE) for its working group on Arctic Acoustic Environments. It addresses
knowledge gaps in long-term trends in soundscape characteristics, research priorities
(transnational programs, equipment/infrastructure sharing), and other issues such as long-term
data archiving and data access policies.
