This report has been prepared by QinetiQ as part of the UK Department of Trade
and Industry (Dti) offshore energy Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)
programme. This technical report is part of the SEA 6 process which covers the
area from Milford Haven northwards through St Georges Channel, the Irish Sea,
The North Channel and up into the outer Clyde Estuary. This report looks at the
sources of underwater noise that combine to provide the background ambient noise
levels in the shallow waters of the SEA 6 area, considers the mechanisms by which
the sound is generated and may then be modified by the environment. Options for
characterising ambient noise levels in the SEA 6 area are presented.
