OT 2015

Ocean Technology Summer School,
June 13-17, 2016

The third edition of the Ocean Technology Summer School, with a duration of five days, took place at UAlg premises, covering various aspects of ocean sensors, ocean and acoustic modelling, underwater acoustics, underwater robotics, remote sensing and data telemetry. It included one day at sea during which several equipment were deployed, such as drifting buoys, an ocean glider, side scan sonnar, CTD and acoustic transmitting and receiving devices (see equipment for more details about available acoustic equipment). The analysis of the data gathered at sea was performed during the summer school. For additional information see OT2016 Summer School.

Ocean Technology Summer School
June 30 - July 4, 2014

This intensive summer school, with a duration of five days, took place at UAlg premises and covers various aspects of ocean sensors, ocean and acoustic modelling, underwater acoustics, remote sensing and data telemetry. It includes one day at sea, aboard the SubNauta off the port of Portimão. During this sea test several equipment was deployed such as drifting buoys, side scan sonnar, CTD and acoustic transmitting and receiving devices (e.g. the AOB (Acoustic Oceanographic Buoy) The analysis of the data gathered at sea was performed during the summer school.

preparing AOB2

Cursto de Acústica Submarina
12 - 15 de Maio de 2008

This was a four day intensive summer course dedicated to underwater acoustics including both theoretical and practical hands on experience with tools and equipments for acoustic ocean observation. The one day at sea took place off the port of Vilamoura, approximately 20 km to the west of Faro. One acoustic source and one multihydrophone (the AOB (Acoustic Oceanographic Buoy) were deployed at sea. Course language was portuguese. For additional information see CAS.

Lubell 1424HP being recovered during RADAR'06 Broadband Lubell acoustic source
This is model 1424HP sound source made by Lubell. It is a piezoelectric transducer delivering 197 dB/uPA/1 m @ 600 Hz (80 V rms). Its main advantage is its size and weigth for a usefull band of 400 Hz - 8 kHz. Its main disadvantage is the limited depth rating of 12 m without pressure compensation. Purchased under projects NUACE and UAB.
