Seiche Training is bringing its internationally-respected Underwater
Acoustics course to Houston, USA, this June.

UNDERWATER ACOUSTICS IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT

This 3 day course equips delegates with a thorough knowledge of the
fundamentals of underwater acoustics. It then focuses on developing clear,
quantitative understanding of the issues involved in the impact of
acoustics on marine wildlife.

The course will be delivered by leading scientists and experts in this
field.

*Who is it for?*

Regulators, environmental consultants and policy/environmental
professionals within industry. The course will be particularly useful in
providing a better understanding of reports that delegates either have to
deliver or receive from clients.


*IMarEST*This course has been granted official CPD recognition by the
Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST).

Dr Paul Lepper will lead this Underwater Acoustics in the Marine
Environment course. Paul specializes in underwater acoustics, bioacoustics
and underwater technologies, including acoustic and optical underwater
systems, sound field measurement, modelling and simulation. He has been
working on assessing hearing abilities of marine mammals, the acoustic
impact of noise on marine fauna, assessing noise from small leisure craft,
offshore windfarm developments and petroleum platforms, the use of acoustic
deterrents, systems for long-term noise field assessment and passive
detection of marine species and the use of various propagation models for
sound field assessment.
