Depth-integrated euphausiid (Family Euphausiidae) backscatter in June and July 2008

This dataset includes the nautical area scattering coefficient (sA, m2 nmi-2) for euphausiids between 16 m below the sea surface and 0.5 m above the seafloor in 0.5 nmi intervals (averaging distance along the survey transect). The latitude, longitude, and vessel log distance values represent the starting location for each interval along the transect. sA is proportional to biomass of euphausiids, but these data have not yet been scaled to biomass units.
