Study: The disappearance of Arctic sea ice due to climate change could lead to increased ocean noise

Oceanographicmagazine discusses how the disappearance of Arctic sea ice due to climate change could lead to increased ocean noise. The Bering Strait is a vital migration route for numerous marine species. Scientists examining levels of ocean noise in the area have confirmed that the presence of sea ice plays a central role in the soundscape of these Arctic waters.
