The course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to interpret and process acoustic broadband data with confidence and to be well-prepared for moving broadband technology forward into routine acoustic research and survey applications in fisheries science.
The course will cover both the theoretical background and how to apply the theory to actual fisheries acoustics through case studies and exercises with synthetic, previously recorded, and real-time data collected during the course.
By the end of the course, the participants should be able to:
This is an advanced course in fisheries acoustics. The participants are assumed to have moderate (college level) knowledge in algebra, calculus, and experience with narrow-band echosounders, such as Simrad EK60.
Intended participants are scientists and engineers scrutinizing acoustic survey data, scientists and students using acoustics.
Participants will need the usual seaman's health certificate for Institute of Marine Reserach (IMR) ships.
