Dataset for "On biogenic turbulence production and mixing from 1 vertically migrating zooplankton in lakes"

Dataset for "On biogenic turbulence production and mixing from 1 vertically migrating zooplankton in lakes"

The dataset provides information of data collected on 21 July, 28 July and 28 August 2016 in Vobster Quay, a 40-m quarry, located in Radstock (UK). Data were collected during the diel vertical migration (DVM) of zooplankton at dusk to understand whether small zooplankton can generated turbulence in the lake interior. The dataset contains: (1) backscatter strength data from a 500-kHz ADCP by Nortek, (2) profiles of zooplankton concentration and (3) profiles of dissipation rates of turbulent kinetic energy acquired with a microstructure profiler.

Keywords:
