Multi-frequency acoustic discrimination between gas bubble plume and biological targets in the ocean

We are proud to announce that one of our colleagues Rokas Kubilius has successfully defended his Ph.D in underwater acoustics at the Biology Department of University of Bergen (UiB). Rokas has worked as an industrial PhD student since April 2011, supported by the Norwegian Research Council and Metas. As a student, he was involved at several vibrant institutions representing industry, academia and scientific research: Metas, UiB and Marine Ecosystem Acoustics research group of Marine Research Institute. His main topic was: Acoustic discrimination between biological objects and gas bubbles in the sea.

The overall objectives of industrial Ph.D grants are to increase the recruitment of researchers to Norwegian industry, to boost long-term competence-building and to enhance interaction between academia and industry.

The AALDOG project:

Development of active acoustic sensor platform for detection of oil and gas leaks from sub-sea infrastructure. This project is supported by Norwegian Research Council and Statoil.

The AKUGAS project:

Development of active acoustic sensor platform for detection of naturally occurring methane and carbon dioxide gas leaks from the ocean seabed. Supported by RFFV (Regional Forsknings Fond Vest).
