This work presents the materials, methods and results of the West Patraikos Gulf ambient and seismic noise monitoring project, realized during the marine 3D seismic survey that was conducted by the Hellenic Petroleum S.A., in 2015. Dense acoustic noise monitoring data were acquired and processed close to the seismic source to as far as away from it, offering the opportunity to study the attenuation characteristics of impulse sounds in long distances. The extensive ambient noise monitoring that has taken place before and after the seismic survey, gave for first time evidence about the ratio of anthropophony to biophony in the area, by revealing fauna species and mechanical disturbances that control the soundscape.
