The course combines theoretical instruction with hands-on demonstrations
and training to give participants a working knowledge of passive acoustic
monitoring hardware, software and data management and
data-review/analysis. The goal of this training course is to provide
individuals with the necessary tools and basic skills to prepare them for
work as bio-acoustic field technicians. This five day course will be held
at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, located on the UCSD campus in La
This Passive Acoustic Technician Training course will include lectures,
demonstrations and activities on the following subjects:
- An introduction to the physics of underwater sound
- how to setup, troubleshooting and repair of towed hydrophone arrays
- software used to detect, localize and classify sounds
- acoustic data collection and management.
- how to splice an underwater (hydrophone array) cable.
All participants will receive a set of materials (handbook and electronic
copies of presentations, software and activities) for future reference.
At the conclusion of this intensive hands-on course, participants will
have gained a working knowledge of practical aspects of towed hydrophone
array system design, maintenance and operations.
College credit is available upon successful completion of the course
through UCSD¹s extensions.
