Short description

It is an open question how life in rivers reacts to sound. To investigate the effects a team from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (Boku) will be doing measurements in September/October using hydrophones, geophones, microphones and cameras. The aim of your work will be to develop signal processing methods that help the researchers from Boku to gain insight what happens acoustically in the river. For further information consult the pdf file.

Your Tasks

  • Design and implementation of the acoustic analysis Python or Julia.
  • Find relations of the acoustic scene with the behaviour of the riverine biota.
  • Evaluation of the algorithm.

Your Profile/Prerequisites

  • Motivation and interest in the topic.
  • Solid Background in Audio Signal Processing.
  • Experience with either Matlab, Python or Julia.

Cooperation

This thesis will be in cooperation with a team from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (Boku)
