    Teaching

    2013-              Processing of geophysical data, multibeam: CAU Kiel, Germany.
                            Practical course with introduction to various software packages for
                            multibeam data processing. 3 ECTS. Bathymetrie (NGP2 Bathymetrie) (060890)
    2010-2017       Advanced Marine Surveying for Science and Industry, Ghent University, Belgium:
                            Block course as part of an integrated course in
                            Marine and Lacustrine Sciences. The course deals with general and
                            specific issues of multibeam surveying, data processing and map
                            creation. Practical parts include the installation of a multibeam system
                            and data processing with different software packages. The theoretical
                            part explains acoustic wave propagation, multibeam systems and their
                            functioning as well as survey techniques and calibration. 40 hours of
                            teaching; 6 ECTS are awarded for the complete course.
