2020 Webinar Series

Underwater Acoustics: 2020 DOSITS Webinar Series for the International Regulatory Community

The DOSITS Team will facilitate a free, four-part webinar series on underwater sound for the international decision-making community.

Each webinar is scheduled for approximately 60 minutes and will be comprised of one, focused presentation (topics listed below), followed by a period of facilitated discussion. The webinar series is open to all interested individuals, however, registration is required (link below).

Starting in 2020, DOSITS will offer a Certificate of Professional Development for interested individuals that participate in all four of the webinars in the 2020 Underwater Acoustics Webinar Series. There are no fees associated with this certificate, however, in addition to webinar participation, after each webinar, interested individuals must complete a brief survey. The link will be sent to registrants.

If you have any questions or experience difficulties with online registration, please contact Holly Morin (holly_morin@uri.edu).
