The application deadline for the Marine Bioacoustics
Summer School program (SeaBASS 2020) is approaching on February 28th. 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.
WHEN: June 1-5, 2020
WHERE: Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY
COSTS: The costs of student attendance (room and board, based on double occupancy for students)
