Dr. Juan I. Arvelo will be one of the acoustics instructors of the ATI course “Applied Physical Oceanography and Acoustics” to be held on May 18-20 in Beltsville, MD. He’ll be focusing on sharing resources to allow the students to continue learning after the course is over. These resources include key books, research papers, and even Internet resources. For example, the students will be able to access educational Java applets to visualize waves and key acoustic phenomena:

Other web-based resources include acoustic demonstration podcasts and iPod apps to conduct acoustic measurements. The student will also be armed with Internet resources for up-to-date information on sonar systems, undersea sound propagation models, and environmental databases. The student will leave with a clear understanding of how the ocean influences undersea sound propagation and scattering.
