Dear Bioacoustics listers

We are a group of three PhD students studying at different universities in
the UK. We are investigating the effect of ship noise on fish in the field
and in the lab. Because the particle motion component of sound plays a
major role in sound perception in fish, we aim to quantify particle motion
using accelerometers. Therefore, we are currently looking for
possibilities to measure particle acceleration in the field, but also in
tanks. Because our tanks are relatively small (e.g. 30 x 150 cm or 40 x 90
cm), we supposedly need compact measuring devices. Do some of you know
whether this would be possible or did some of you already develop such
devices? We are currently talking to companies involved in the development
of sound devices to find solutions, but they also want to know whether
more researchers would be interested. Could you let us know whether you
would be interested?

Thank you very much for your help,
Ilaria Spiga (Newcastle), Louise Roberts (Hull), Irene Voellmy (Bristol)
