A sample dataset of a 3-element SoundTrap array, as recorded on the bench is available here. This is supplementary research data to accompany the following article: Malinka CE, Atkins J, Johnson MP, Tonnesen PH, Dunn CA, Claridge DE, Aguilar de Soto N, Madsen PT. "An autonomous hydrophone array to study the acoustic ecology of deep-water toothed whales." Deep Sea Research I. This data is included to allow for testing of the MATLAB library (github.com/cemalinka/SoundTrapArray) for the time synchronisation of all channels on the SoundTrap array. 1678024710 is the transmitter, and the other two SoundTraps are receivers. Upon using this software and data, taps of both receivers against the transmitter at the end of the ~2.5 h long deployment will be accurately time-aligned in the resulting multi-channel WAV files.
