 A Ph. D. Class on Marine Bioacoustics
 Tjärnö Marine Biological Laboratory, Strömstad, Sweden
 29th of May ? 8th of June, 2005
 Funded by the Nordic Academy for Advanced Study (NorFA) and the
 International School of Aquatic Sciences (SOAS)
 This class covers basic aspects of underwater bioacoustics with emphasis on
 measurement techniques. The lectures introduce animal hearing, signal
 processing, sound production, echolocation, and noise effects. Technical
 developments, such as acoustic telemetry, hydrophone arrays, echo-sounders,
 multi-beam sonars, as well as methods for scaring and attracting wildlife
 with sound, are also covered. Besides  25 lectures a major part of the
 course (45 hrs) is devoted to demonstrations and practicals. The students
 get hands-on experience with marine bioacoustic techniques, such as
 hydrophone calibration, acoustic localization, play back and noise
 measurements. Participants will prepare reports on the practicals and present
 them at the end of the course.
 The course is limited to 16 students and is free of charge, room and board
 included. For participants with limited economic means, small grants are
 available to cover travel costs.
 Student from Nordic countries have preference, but any graduate students
 with a relevant background are encouraged to apply.
