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 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.


*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).
