Description 
Summary

This data set resulted from the first DERA contribution to the Shelf Edge Studies - SES programme undertaken by the UK civilian oceanographic community. They were collaborative trials involving DERA, NRL Stennis, France and the Netherlands making oceanographic, geoacoustic and acoustic measurements. The data were collected by the Military Oceanography Group at the Platform Systems Integration Department at DERA Winfrith. All data have been screened for format errors and corrected to produce a clean dataset.
