Acoustics Unpacked: Analysis of the Combined Error Structure inAcoustic Surveys in the Great Lakes

This new project will provide a synthesis of acoustic survey methods  for all three of New York's large lakes (Erie, Ontario and Champlain)  into a form that is portable and general to almost any aquatic system.  The expected outcome will be a tool that integrates all the steps in  deriving calculations of forage abundance and distribution in a  unified way to obtain acoustic survey estimates that reflect the real  precision in abundance estimates.
