Hydroacoustics training: courses on broadband, fisheries and ecosystem acoustics

17 October 2019

Are you using echosounder data and wanting to know more about this specialized topic? In addition to Echoview's regularly-offered courses, there are currently two other interesting learning opportunities that are taking applications: one offered by ICES in Norway and the other from the Federal University of Pernambuco in Brazil.

Echoview training courses (provided by Echoview Software)

An Echoview training course will provide you with the skills to understand your single-beam and/or multibeam echosounder data, and to process it efficiently using Echoview. We now offer training courses at two levels:

  • Fundamental: our traditional course. Designed for those just starting out with echosounding and Echoview, or those with some experience who wish to consolidate and hone their fundamental skills.
  • Advanced: our new offering. Designed for those with a good understanding of echosounder theory and Echoview who wish to explore more advanced use of the software.

For more information and scheduled dates, please visit our Training and Events page.

Principles and methods of broadband technologies: application to fisheries acoustics (provided by ICES)

The course provides participants with the knowledge and skill 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. It 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.

This course will be held on December 10-17 onboard G.O. Sars out of Bergen, Norway.

Applications are due by October 30. For more information, please visit the ICES website.

Lecture on ecosystem acoustics - theory and practice (provided by the Federal University of Pernambuco)

A lecture on ecosystem acoustics will be presented as part of the Master and PhD program on Oceanography of the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE). The objective of the course is to provide the theoretical and technical knowledge to process acoustic data with an ecosystem perspective. The course is divided into two parts: the first theoretical part is intended to introduce the main concepts of underwater acoustics, and the second practical part is designed for people who have the objective to learn how to process acoustic data.

The lecture will be held on November 4-14 in Recife, Brazil.
