May 1-12, 2017—NEW COURSE!!

Spaces still available: Applications accepted until MARCH 30—Apply NOW!!


Acoustic recording and monitoring now are mainstream tools for biological research and conservation. Recording equipment and software for analyzing animal sounds are readily available, but few opportunities exist for biologists to learn appropriate use of the equipment and software together. This course fills that training gap. In two-weeks of long field-and-lab days, participants make and document high-quality recordings under varying conditions and address research and conservation questions by using acoustic analysis software to visualize/extract recording information. Collaboratively taught by Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Smithsonian, and George Mason researchers, participants learn practical techniques for acquiring and analyzing animal sound recordings under real-world field conditions. This hands-on training focuses on bioacoustics, principally with Raven Pro sound analysis software (course fee includes student license): course modules also discuss soundscape theory, the emerging field of ecological acoustics, and other acoustics software platforms.
