Summary of CV:

Jaroslaw Tegowski(° 1955), associate professor at the University of Gdaosk (Poland) is a specialist in underwater acoustics. His research focuses on the physical understanding of acoustic remote sensing and its uses in underwater environments. He is teaching Acoustical Oceanography, Marine Physics and Seafloor Acoustics in the Bachelor's, Master's and PhD Programmes. He is promoter of 4 ongoing Ph.Ds. In total he has 51 refereed publications in Acoustical Oceanography, Environmental Acoustics, Marine Optics and Sea Surface Dynamics. He has been involved in many (inter)national research programmes (eg. FP6 ARCFAC, FP5). He spent cumulatively two years and seven months at numerous marine scientific expeditions making acoustical, optical and oceanographical measurements (eg. Polar Regions - Svalbard Archipelago, Southern Atlantic Ocean, Baltic Sea, Siberia rivers).
