ALFA MHK Biological Monitoring Stationary Deployment - South Energy Test Site, Newport, Oregon


Acoustic backscatter data from a WBAT operating at 70kHz deployed at PMEC-SETS from April to September of 2016. 180 pings were collected at 1Hz every two hours, as part of the Advanced Laboratory and Field Arrays (ALFA) for Marine Energy project.
Data was subject to preliminary processing (noise removal, a threshold of -75dB was applied, surface turbulence and data below 0.5m from the bottom was removed).
