Potential Effects of Sound on Marine Fishes -Tuesday, November 27, 2018 – Dr. Arthur Popper.
Arthur N. Popper is professor emeritus and research professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Maryland. Dr. Popper’s research has focused on hearing, with a particular interest in the structure and function of the auditory capabilities and mechanisms of fishes. His lab has focused on a comparative approach and contributed to understanding of how the auditory system of fishes vary across species. More recently, Popper’s work has focused on the effects of human-generated sounds on aquatic organisms, and particularly fishes. Dr. Popper has served as consultant to private industry and government agencies on effects of sound on fish including the U.S. Navy, the California Department of Transportation, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, New York State Department of Transportation, and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). Dr. Popper is also editor of Acoustics Today, a publication of the Acoustical Society of America and founding editor of the Springer Handbook of Auditory Research.
