Abstract:

Ocean Acre 10 was more successful than the previous nine Ocean Acre Cruises for the following reasons 1 discrete biological samples were obtained at all sampling depths to 1150 m, day and night, 2 acoustic measurements were taken to obtain scattering strengths during all periods of the day, 3 a direct correlation was obtained between acoustic and biological data, and 4 an improved biological net operating system was used successfully for the first time. When the data are analyzed, the results will be a significant contribution to the understanding of biological reverberation. Author
