In conjunction with the opening of Åsa Stjerna’s sound installation Mare Balticum at KUMU Art Museum

Baltic Sea Information on the Acoustic Soundscape [BIAS] is an international EU Life+ project spanning from 2012-2016, involving scientists from six nations around the Baltic Sea, with the aim to study human induced sound in the sea. By measuring the underwater sound for one full year, at 38 different locations in the Baltic, synchronized maps of underwater soundscape were produced, showing how sound from marine vessels affects the Baltic soundscape.
