Summary, etc.:
"The workshop recommended that NOAA's PAOOS provide data on biological, geophysical, oceanographic, meteorological, and anthropogenic ocean events. While some of these functions will be served by different elements of the PAOOS, it is critical to note the inherently multipurpose capacity of acoustic sensors. Passive acoustic deployments will substantively augment existing observing platforms, maximize sensing capability, and generate information targeted toward meeting the following five strategic objectives: 1. Develop and deploy sensing capabilities to augment conventional means of detecting and assessing living marine resources; 2. Quantify spatial and temporal variance in marine ambient noise; 3. Provide detection capability of specific anthropogenic acoustic events; 4. Provide detection capability of specific anthropogenic acoustic events; 5. Contribute to public education and appreciation of marine ecosystems"--Executive summary.
