Passive acoustic recording data from the Alaskan Beaufort Sea


These data form part of an interdisciplinary mooring that includes measuring the water masses and currents, ice-thickness and ice-velocity, nutrients, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, pH, chlorophyll fluorescence (phytoplankton), acoustic backscatter (zooplankton), and marine mammal calls. The data here represent the marine mammal call data. The data are acoustic wav files from an instrument moored in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea.

These data are orderable by time. The files are in 1/2 hour increments from September 25th, 2010 to August 31st, 2013
