UAK - Active and Passive Acoustic data - 24 Jun 2020

Ambient sound was measured in Storfjorden, Svalbard at frequencies from 30 to 24000 Hz at a depth of around 20 meters. The measurements were carried out in open sea at depths of about 100 metres or more. The measurements were carried out using a drifting small boat, where the engine was turned off. Thereafter, a second small boat was used for transmitting pings at 11 kHz towards the first small boat at different depths and ranges. The experiment was carried out in June 2020 by Master students under supervision, as part of a research school in the Barents Sea with K/V Svalbard, organized under the UAK project lead by the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre.
