EK60 raw multi-frequency (EK80, 38 and 200 kHz) acoustic data collected during RV METEOR cruise M153 to the Benguela Upwelling System work area


Hydroacoustic raw data from the M153 cruise aboard the RV Meteor in 2019 (15/02/2019 to 27/03/2019) to the Benguela Upwelling System. The hydroacoustics were used to observe the distribution of krill, zooplankton and pelagic fish up to the mesopelagic zone for the project TRAFFIC. We used a SIMRAD EK80 system with a transportable SIMRAD WBT Mini and combined transducer with 38 and 200 kHz. Data deeper than 750m has been identified as range limit and excluded.
