the Introduction and Practical PAM courses are taking
place on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th May on the beautiful Isle of Mull, Scotland.
The intro course
2nd May) introduces participants to PAMGUARD, a leading open source
software suite for passive acoustics. The one day course intends to provide
a basic foundation in passive acoustic software allowing participants to
then gain experience as PAM operators under supervision or go on to our
practical and/or advanced courses.
The practical course (3rd
and 4th May) runs over two days. On the first day (classroom based) we will
be introducing participants to more advanced aspects of PAMGUARD e.g. setting up your own settings files, using more complex hydrophone arrays and integrating with hardware.The second day will be spent at sea on Silurian, a research vessel used in some of the most cutting edge PAM research in the UK. On board you will learn how to use a modern PAM setup, deal with common problems and hopefully detect some real porpoises and/ordolphins.
Getting to Mull is not as hard as it might seem. Take the train to Glasgow and then Oban and grab a ferry. You can then take a bus to Tobermory.
There are still spaces available and you can book
Please get in touch if you’d like any more information about these, or the other courses that we run, or have a look at our website (pamtech.eu)
