CITIES Seminar Series: An Eco-Acoustic Survey of the Impacts of Anthropogenic Noise Pollution on Jubail Island’s Avian Populations 

On December 8, 2022, CITIES hosted another Seminar Series with Prof. Matteo Marciano, Assistant Professor of Practice of Music Technology. In this talk, Professor Matteo Marciano aimed to unveil the level of noise pollution impacting natural life in Abu Dhabi. This research aims to demonstrate the impacts of large-scale urban development on human and wildlife populations through acoustic surveys recording biophonic and anthropogenic sounds. The focus is to minimize the detrimental effect of noise on humans and animals in Abu Dhabi.
