Sound Source Verifications
NCE has performed sound source verifications on systems ranging from airguns to boomers. Testing was performed using NCE’s Buoy Acoustic Measurement System (BAMS™) to characterize the acoustic output of these sources at close and long ranges. This data was then used to assess potential impacts to marine life and other regulatory concerns. NCE worked with clients to discuss findings with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE).
