Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS. The central goal of this project is for the Primary Investigator, Gareth Lawson, to design, execute, and defend his doctoral thesis research. In terms of its scientific purpose, this research seeks to contribute to our understanding of spatial and temporal patchiness in the distribution of high-frequency acoustic volume backscattering stemming from zooplankton e.g., Figure 1.
