We are pleased to announce this year's marine bioacoustics summer school
program (SeaBASS 2016). The application period will be closing on 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.
