Seiche Training is offering its Underwater Acoustics courses for September
2015 at the University of Bath:


*FUNDAMENTALS OF UNDERWATER ACOUSTICS*


*1-5 September, 2015University of Bath, UKin association with the
University of Bath*
*CPD recognition from IMarEST*

This 5 day intensive course in underwater acoustics 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.

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.




*UNDERWATER ACOUSTICS IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT1-4 September 2015University
of Bath, UKin association with the University of Bath*



*CPD recognition from IMarEST*Our 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
across this 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.
