Xi Presenting at Acoustics'17 in Boston

Published: 13/07/2017

Dr Brett Marmo, Xi Engineering's Technical Director, was invited to present his paper on underwater acoustics at the international acoustic event held in Boston this year. Acoustics'17 Boston was hosted by the Acoustical Society of America from the 25th to the 29th of June and is the 173rd Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America.

Dr Marmo's paper, Operational Noise from Tidal Turbine Arrays and the Assessment of Collision Risk with Marine Mammals,  was well received at the event. The paper focussed on the modelling aspect of calculating and predicting the environmental impact that subsea structures can have on marine life. Specifically, tidal turbines and how the acoustic emissions aid in predicting collision risk of the surrounding sea life.


If you missed Brett speaking at Acoustics'17 this year then you can still catch him talking on the same subject at ICSV24 at the end of July. Brett will be speaking on Thursday at 14:00-14:20 in plaza 10. Dr Jutta Stauber of Xi Engineering will also be presenting her work on wind turbine tonal noise mitigation on Tuesday at ICSV24.
