Description

This review primarily addresses the available information on windfarm related noise
sources, with an emphasis on reported measured sound levels. Behavioural and
physical responses to noise are briefly covered where appropriate but are not treated
in any great depth. Two sections are included, for readers unfamiliar with either
offshore windfarms or underwater acoustics, which provide a sufficient background to
understand the terms and concepts used in the review. These are followed by the
body of the report which contains a summary of the available information on
windfarm related noise sources.
