Abstract
The frequency dependence of acoustic volume backscattering strength has been measured at depths of 100, 200, 300, and 400 ft in Saanich Inlet, British Columbia, Canada, over a 24-h period. The measurements were made for comparison with open-ocean (Pacific) results, since the biology of the inlet has been extensively studied, and it serves to some extent as a reference water volume.
