ESME logo

ESME is an ONR Life Sciences Research Program focused on producing an integrated computer model of animal response to the sound fields produced by human activities, with a special emphasis on naval sound sources such as sonars, explosives, and acoustic communications.

The ESME program uses an integrated interdisciplinary team approach and involves scientists from the fields of geophysics, oceanography, underwater acoustics, marine ecology, animal physiology and hearing research, and mathematical modeling.
