Jonathan Vallarta's Summary

As an underwater acoustics consultant and with a wide range of expertise and field work experience as a PAM operator, Jonathan Vallarta conducts PAM courses in Canada and Latin America while at the same time teaches at Iberoamericana University in Mexico City. After having earned his PhD in Underwater Acoustics at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, he specialized in the design of new configurations for hydrophone arrays and development of localization algorithms using passive sonar techniques that accurately track the migratory patterns of whales in areas where there is increased seismic and drilling activity. His interest continues to be in marine conservation issues, especially in reference to threatened species, noise pollution and mitigation.
