Data - Mooring Site 2 Zooplankton

TAPS-8 is a moored, 8-frequency acoustic zooplankton monitor. The nominal depth of the moored sensor is 18 meters. The two graphs below show TAPS-8 data since its deployment at Mooring Site 2 on ~April 20. The top graph is an estimate of the average sizes of the zooplankton in 2-hour blocks. The bottom graph is a display of the small-volume, volume-scattering strength spectrum for the same time period.
