Summary
Abstract: Data Acquisition:

DIFAR (DIrectional Fixing And Ranging) 53D sonobuoys were deployed every 30 minutes of longitude during each of the north-south sampling transects as part of the acoustic survey for marine mammals. Sonobuoys were also deployed opportunistically when large numbers of whales (in particular minke whales) were sighted. Additionally, on the initial E-W transect (#12) sonobouys were ...

SONOBUOYS Ancillary Description
Quality Sonobuoy recordings are calibrated for sound pressure level according to the standard sonobuoy frequency response specifications, and the recording gain on the receiving instruments. Recording gain is noted in the data log.

Recordings made from sonobuoys deployed prior to CTD stations usually had a fair amount of vessel noise throughout as the sonobuoy was typically deployed between ... View entire text
