Underwater Acoustic Modelling Course
25-26 October 2016
Plymouth University, UK

Seiche Training, Plymouth University and ZCat Science are pleased to announce a 
new two day course in underwater acoustic modelling.   The course is delivered 
by leading research professors and experts in their field, including Professor 
Georgy Shapiro, Dr Feng Chen and Dr Paul Lepper.

Course Modules:

*       Introduction to underwater sound

*       Modelling processes and capabilities

*       The physics of sound propagation and assessment metrics

*       Types of models available

*       Criteria for assessing impacts upon marine life and mitigation zone 

*       Field measurement and sound source verification

*       Application to EIAs

*       Interpretation of results / best practice / standards / metrics

*       Properties of sea water: temperature, salinity and sound speed

*       Oceanic features influencing sound propagation and their variability: 
thermocline, fronts and eddies

*       Visualisation tools to identify ocean thermocline, fronts and eddies

*        Seasonal variation in sound propagation

*       Modelling shipping noise experienced by marine life

Who is it for?
Regulators, environmental consultants, researchers and policy/environmental 
professionals within industry. The course introduces all the key concepts and 
opens up a learning pathway to those wishing to conduct modelling themselves in 
the future. It is well suited to those who require deeper understanding of 
technical reports.

Seiche Training is an arm of Seiche Ltd, the marine acoustics company providing 
modelling, measurement and mitigation solutions to industry, government, 
academia and defence.
