EK60 Data in Amundsen Sea, Antarctic in 2011Entry ID: KPDC_EKD_AM_ANTAR_2011
Abstract: Acoustic survey was conducted to observe the distribution and density of zooplankton in Amundsen Sea from 2011 January 1 to January 8. Acoustic data were collected from surface to 400 m using split-beam transducers of 38 and 120 kHZ (Simard EK60 scientific echosounder) during three acoustic transects.
Purpose: Observation of the spatial distribution and density of zooplankton using the acoustic system to understand their variability in the ice region, Amundsen sea.
