Abstract : Multichannel ice camp ambient noise data were recorded by NUSC during the TRISTEN/FRAM IV experiment in the Barents Abyssal Plain, Arctic Ocean during April 1982. Single-hydrophone data were recorded from various elements of both the Massachusetts Institute of Technology/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute horizontal array and the Naval Research Laboratory vertical array. This paper characteristics the average ambient noise level and its variance as a function of frequency (to 2500 Hz), depth, and time.
