Discovery of Sound in the Sea (DOSITS) Book I: Importance of Sound in the Sea 
<> 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 - <>. 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
