We are pleased to announce this year's Marine Bioacoustics Summer School program (SeaBASS 2020).
SeaBASS provides the opportunity for currently enrolled 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.
The topics covered in the course include: Introduction to Underwater Sound,
Sound Propagation,Marine Mammal Biology & Behavior,
Fish Communication & Behavior,
Hearing, Echolocation, Fisheries Acoustics/Active Acoustic Monitoring, and Passive Acoustic Monitoring & Signal Processing.
