Underwater Acoustics in the Marine Environment

course thumbnailUnderwater noise in the marine environment is a topic of increasing importance. As concern has grown over its possible negative effects, regulatory requirements have become more stringent.

Seiche are recognised experts in underwater acoustics. We provide solutions to industry, defence and research sectors for mitigation, monitoring and modelling‎.

Seiche Training runs highly-respected Underwater Acoustics courses in association with University of Bath, UK, and CPD-recognised by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST).

This 3 day Underwater Acoustics in the Marine Environment course equips delegates with a thorough knowledge of the fundamentals of underwater acoustics. It then focuses on developing clear, quantitative understanding of the issues involved in the impact of acoustics on marine wildlife.

The following topics will be covered: ocean environments, noise propagation models, sound field modelling, methods of assessment, impacts of noise on marine life, mitigation, environmental regulations and Environmental Impact

Assessments (EIAs), fisheries, JNCC guidelines and emerging studies and technologies across this field.

Delivered by leading research professors and experts including Dr Paul Lepper, Professor Victor Humphrey and Dr Peter Dobbins.

The course is intended for regulators, environmental consultants, researchers and policy/environmental professionals within industry. It will be particularly useful in providing a better understanding of reports that delegates either have to deliver or receive from clients.
