Description 
Summary

The data set resulted from the UK acoustic measurement contribution to the UK/Germany/Norwegian oceanographic and acoustic survey in the Norwegian Sea. Acoustic propagation data were collected. Data were collected by the Acoustic Measurement Section of the Sonar Performance Division at DRA, Portland. They are stored in the DRA archive system and have been processed to the DRA standard MIDAS user data file format. These data have been screened for format and data errors and corrected to produce a 'clean' data set.
