New software, developed by an international team led by CCOM research professors Jenn Miksis-Olds and Tony Lyons, will help build a global repository of ocean sounds. The data will be used to compare the "usual" noise of the ocean with the sudden quiet that came from human activities being curtailed during the pandemic.

An international development team, led by Jen Miksis-Olds, has created MANTA (Making Ambient Noise Trends Accessible) Software to process sound data collected from the world’s oceans and help researchers understand the global sea soundscape dynamics, including the impact of COVID-19 when travel and economic slowdowns put a halt to human activities in the ocean. MANTA will be used to look at the effects of COVID-19 when human activities in the ocean, like shipping, fishing and recreational crafts essentially stopped, creating a unique opportunity for a time-series study of the impacts of sound on ocean soundscapes and marine life.
