Bio-Waves, Inc. is pleased to announce that registration is now open for our
Passive Acoustic Technician Training Workshop.  The workshop combines
theoretical instruction with hands-on demonstrations and training to give
participants a working knowledge of passive acoustic monitoring hardware,
software and data management.  The goal of this training workshop is to
provide individuals with the necessary tools and basic skills to prepare
them for work as bio-acoustic field technicians.

This five day workshop will be held at the San Diego Supercomputer Center,
La Jolla, California from September 6 - September 10, 2011.  To register or

Space is limited so we encourage participants to register early.

This workshop provides information, materials and practical training related
to the following subjects:
-the physics of underwater sound
-the uses and limitations of passive acoustic monitoring
-instruction on the set-up, troubleshooting and repair of towed hydrophone
arrays
-software used to detect, localize and classify sounds produced by marine
mammals
