We are pleased to announce SeaBASS 2016. The application period is now open and closes Feb 29, 2016.
SeaBASS provides the opportunity for graduate students interested in pursuing careers in marine bioacoustics to develop a strong foundation of both marine animal biology and
acoustics from distinguished lecturers in the field. The goals of SeaBASS are to discuss important topics in marine bioacoustics, foster technical communication across disciplines, and promote mentoring and collaboration. SeaBASS gives students an opportunity
to learn from experts who will discuss a suite of topics not often offered at any one university.
