United States : Gulf Acoustics Workshop to Highlight Observatory Technology.
BioSonics president, Tim Acker, explained the motivation to hold this specialised Working Group Meeting. He said that billions of dollars have been allocated to assess the biological impacts and the effectiveness of recovery efforts in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Split beam hydroacoustics is a core technology for fisheries and aquatic habitat assessment. Observatory systems can provide an improved understanding of temporal shifts in behavior and migration patterns and will play a critical role in the ongoing assessment efforts in the Gulf of Mexico.
The working group meeting will include scientific presentations, a round table discussion, and demonstrations on the latest in remote and autonomous hydroacoustic monitoring systems. Featured technologies will include: DT-X SUB autonomous submersible split beam echosounder, Liquid Robotics Fisheries Wave Glider & Towed Echo sounder, SMART Automated Processing Software & Real Time reporting, and more. Attendance is limited and interested participants are encouraged to contact meeting organisers soon for details.
