Research Staff:

Wes Paul (Ocean Acoustics Technologist), Doug Schillinger (Research Assistant), and Walter Judge (Electronics Technologist) form the mainstay of our field-going capability. Wes and Doug are full-time members of the Ocean Acoustics Lab. Walter's time is shared with other members of the Department. Doug's primary responsibilities are the computing/data processing facility and the related development of the real-time monitoring and data storage system for MEPS, and the development of processing algrorithms for the right whale sound detection recognition system. Wes is in charge of the Ocean Acoustics Lab and instrument development. Dr. Robert Craig (Ph.D. Herriot-Watt University) continues to work with us on the software for the QNX-based data acquisition system on a contractual basis. Jackie Hurst (Research Assistant, shared) provides graphics and manuscript preparation support.
