Echo-sounding data collected on James Clark Ross cruise JR58, 2001


Echo-sounding data collected using the hull-mounted Simrad EK500 aboard the James Clark Ross (cruise no JR58) in 2001. This formed part of a project to determine the structure of zooplankton aggregations through multi-frequency acoustics and nets. The echo-sounder was used during net hauls where the net-mounted TUBA, multi-frequency acoustic system, was deployed, and was used to identify suitable targets of zooplankton layers or swarms.
