Active Acoustic data in the Labrador Sea and Canadian Arctic (2017-2019)

The dataset is composed of raw files (.raw) recorded with a SIMRAD EK60 three-frequency (38, 120, 200 kHz) split-beam echosounder that was operated continuously during the ArcticNet cruise aboard the CCGS Amundsen from 2017 to 2019. To ground-truth the hydroacoustic signal, various sampling techniques were applied throughout the cruise track such as midwater and bottom trawling as well as plankton net deployments.
