Passive Acoustic Monitoring Training Course

9 - 11 February 2015

New Orleans, USA


Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) – Level 1

Our well-established three day course provides comprehensive training for personnel new to the offshore industry. This course provides the skills needed to use PAM systems as a PAM operator and is aimed at delegates with a scientific background, preferably in biology and marine sciences.

Two days of classroom sessions to include lectures on sound in water, marine mammal and sound production, anthropogenic noise sources and their effect on marine mammals, PAM principles and the role of the PAM operator, Seiche PAM hardware with deployment and operations, PAM software and an introduction to PAMGuard.

There will be a hands-on sessions in the classroom with the Seiche 
PAM equipment to reinforce the lectures and encourage the delegates to get to grips with the system, its set-up, operation and troubleshooting.

The final classroom session is an interactive PAMGuard workshop where delegates learn how to build a functioning PAMGuard data model. Simulated sources and recordings are used to show how to effectively detect and localize marine mammals.

Day three is a practical session on a vessel where delegates use what they have learned to take an active role in set-up, deployment and operation of the Seiche 
PAM system at sea and run through troubleshooting scenarios.

Thorough support material is provided.
