|A workshop on post-processing of acoustic data was held in Bergen 23-28 January 2006. Assembled for 5 days in the University of Bergen field station at Espegrend, MAR-ECO scientists made significant progress on post-cruise analyses of the data from echosounders. The post-processing involves combining data from the echosounders with observations made by samplers, e.g. plankton nets and trawls, or optical instruments. Therefore, the group consisted of specialists in hydroacoustics, and biologists studying occurrence and abundance of plankton, fish and mammals using sampling gears and visual sightings. |
