Wain, D., Simoncelli, S., 2016. Data for Simoncelli et al. 2016 L&O Letters: Can zooplankton mix lakes? University of Bath.
The dataset provides backscatter strength data from a 500-kHz ADCP by Nortek deployed in Vobster Quay, a 40-m quarry in South-West England (UK). Acoustic data shows the Diel Vertical Migration of small zooplankton at dusk and sunrise on 24-28 June 2016. The dataset also contains 10 turbulence profiles acquired with a microstructure profiler (SCAMP, manufactured by PME) in the same lake during the day. The ensemble-averaged profile shows small dissipation of turbulent kinetic energy in the lake interior, where turbulence is generally suppressed by the summer temperature stratification.
