attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String NOAA and the U.S. Navy are working to better understand underwater sound within the U.S. National Marine Sanctuary System. From 2018 to 2021, these agencies will work with numerous scientific partners to study sound within seven national marine sanctuaries and one marine national monument, which includes waters off Hawai'i and the east and west coasts. Standardized measurements will assess sounds produced by marine animals, physical processes (e.g., wind and waves), and human activities. Collectively, this information will help NOAA and the Navy measure sound levels and baseline acoustic conditions in sanctuaries. This work is a continuation of ongoing Navy ( and NOAA ( monitoring and research, including efforts by NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries ( This dataset represents the derived products from the raw acoustic data that are archived at NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (
