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.


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