I am happy to announce a workshop held on Monday, 4th September 2006 in Stralsund, Germany entitled:
STATIC ACOUSTIC MONITORING (SAM) AS A TOOL FOR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STUDIES WITH EMPHASIS ON OFFSHORE WIND FARM CONSTRUCTIONS
The subject of this one-day workshop is the application of static passive acoustic monitoring devices like the T-POD (Chelonia Ltd, Long Rock, UK), a self-contained submersible data-logger for porpoises and dolphins, in environmental impact studies (EIS) with emphasis on offshore wind farms.
Aim of the workshop is to develop common recommendations for the application and analysis of static acoustic monitoring in EIS, to assess problems and discuss solutions. Emphasis will be laid on the experimental design and analysis methods as well as on the comparability and interpretability of data. Participants are asked to contribute their knowledge and experience. Case studies will be presented as basis for a general discussion on the topics named above.
Please send your applications to <ursula.verfuss at meeresmuseum.de>, including a few words on your work and the experience with static acoustic monitoring systems. Suggestions for presentations or topics for discussion are welcomed!
The workshop will be held in the frame of the cooperation project MINOS+ (www.minos-info.org) at the German Oceanographic Museum in Stralsund, Germany and is organized in association with the MINOS+ status seminar, held on 5th to 6th September, 2006 in Stralsund. Participants of the workshop are welcome to join the status seminar. The language of the workshop will be English, whilst the language of the status seminar will be mainly German with English contributions.
