The soundscape in the Marginal Ice Zone

Youtube movie - UNDER-ICE acousticsThe soundscape in the Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ) is comprised of seismic airgun noise, ship cavitation noise, and natural background noise due to different geophysical processes in the MIZ. Cavitation noise from the research ice-breaker dominated the sound scape at times.
