Bioacoustical Oceanography Workshop

A five week workshop on bioacoustical oceanography will be held at Friday Harbor Laboratories from July 19 to August 21, 1993. The workshop will attempt to give participants an extensive overview of the field of bioacoustics including review of the principles of sound propagation in the ocean and the basics of acoustic signal processing. Participants will be introduced to the theory and practical aspects of multiple-frequency, split-beam, dual-beam, acoustic doppler, and acoustic imaging techniques. The first two weeks will focus on lectures, seminars, and demonstrations (many by invited acoustical experts). The final three weeks will be devoted to experiments, data analysis and reporting. The intended audience for this workshop includes graduate students, postdoctoral associates and research scientists at the beginning of their careers. Course instructors are Charles Greene (Cornell), Peter Wiebe (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, WHOI) and Tim Stanton (WHOI). Further information about the workshop can be obtained from Dr. Charles Greene, Director, Ocean Resources & Ecosystems Program, Corson Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853.
