for Seiche International Underwater Acoustics in the Marine Environment 3 day course

June 22-24

Houston, USA


This 3 day course equips delegates with a thorough knowledge of the fundamentals of underwater acoustics. It then focuses on developing clear, quantitative understanding of the issues involved in the impact of acoustics on marine wildlife.

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).
