The Cornell Bioacoustics Research Program is offering a one-week integrated sound recording and analysis workshop for researchers and serious amateurs interested in wildlife sounds, 9 – 16 June 2018 at San Francisco State University’s Sierra Nevada Field Campus in the Tahoe National Forest near Calpine, CA. The workshop provides a solid foundation in bioacoustic principles, audio technology, field techniques, and analysis software and methods, for the beginner and experienced investigator alike. The field station provides lodging, meals, and space for lectures and discussions; nearby areas afford a wide range of recording opportunities and challenges in spectacular settings. Each day is comprised of several hours of field recording in the morning, and lectures, discussions, and hands-on exercises in the afternoon.
Your instructors will be Greg Budney, former Curator of Audio at the Lab’s Macaulay Library, Russ Charif and Ashik Rahaman of the Cornell Bioacoustics Research Program, Bill McQuay, former Supervising Engineer at Macaulay Library, and Laurel Symes, of Dartmouth College. An invaluable member of the instructional team is the perennial volunteer and early morning coffee wrangler, Adele Binning.
