Raw acoustic data collected by an EK60 echo sounder in the Scotia Sea on board the RRS James Clark Ross cruise JR15004 (Jan - Feb 2016)


Acoustic backscatter data were collected on board the RRS James Clark Ross (cruise JR15004) as part of the British Antarctic Survey's Long Term Monitoring and Survey programme.

Data were collected using a Simrad EK60 echo sounder at 38, 70, 120 and 200 kHz. The EK60 was run almost continuously from Stanley (Falkland Islands) to Signy (South Orkney Islands), then back to Stanley (Falkland Islands) in the austral summer from January 2016 - February 2016.
