Discovery of Sound in the Sea (DOSITS) Book I: Importance of Sound in the Sea
<http://www.dosits.org/book/> is a new, interactive electronic book (eBook)
that contains high-resolution imagery, videos, and sound files, all in an
interactive, touch-and-play format. It utilizes existing, peer-reviewed DOSITS
content to provide a condensed electronic resource that focuses on how marine
animals use, produce, and receive sound, as well as an overview of the effects
of sound on marine life. Several of the topics discussed in this book are areas
of current and active scientific research and new information is integrated
into the eBook as peer-reviewed publications become available.
The content in this book is based on the Discovery of Sound in the Sea (DOSITS)
project, including its website - www.dosits.org <http://www.dosits.org/>. The
DOSITS content is based on well-understood scientific principles, peer-reviewed
literature, and high quality sources of scientific data. Independent,
scientific experts, who specialize in underwater acoustics, have reviewed all
of the eBook’s content. The DOSITS Project attempts to keep its content as
up-to-date as possible, incorporating new research findings into its website
twice a year.
The book is available for MacOS, iPad, and iPhone. To view sample pages and
