UNDERWATER ACOUSTICS IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT
23 - 26th March 2015
University of Southampton, UK
in association with the University of Bath

Seiche's 4 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 following topics are covered:
ocean environments, noise propagation models, sound field modelling, methods
of assessment, impacts of noise on marine life, mitigation, environmental
regulations and Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs), fisheries, JNCC
guidelines, emerging studies and technologies acrossthis field, the
physical drivers of noise and seismic sources, vessel-radiated noise,
shallow water measurements, marine seismic imaging, marine seismic sources
and marine seismic data processing.

The course is delivered by leading research professors and experts in
their field including Dr Paul Lepper, Dr Philippe Blondel, Dr Paul
Fernandes and Professor Victor Humphrey

It will be particularly useful in providing a better understanding of
reports that delegates either have to deliver or receive from clients.

Who is it for?
Regulators, environmental consultants and policy/environmental
professionals within industry

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



UNDERWATER ACOUSTICS FOR OIL, GAS AND DEFENCE

23 - 27th March 2015
University of Southampton, UK
in association with the University of Bath

This 5 day intensive course in underwater acoustics is delivered by leading
research professors primarily for engineers and scientists from the oil,
gas and defence industries.

The first 3 days cover the principles of underwater acoustics, providing
delegates with an in-depth knowledge of the mechanisms of sound propagation
in the ocean, the impact of noise and reverberation produced by the ocean
environment and the basic structure and performance of acoustic instruments.
This is followed by 2 days of advanced modules on underwater sound sources
with emphasis on sonar, its application and measurement, calculations in
shelf sea waters, seismic imaging, seismic sources and seismic data.

Delegates are required to have a good grounding in Maths, Engineering or
Science.

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