All scientific data collected by the Australian Antarctic program (AAp) are eventually described in the Catalogue of Australian Antarctic and Subantarctic Metadata (CAASM). CAASM can be used to search through AAp data descriptions, and it also provides links to access publicly available datasets, which can either be immediately downloaded or obtained from the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC).

Description

This dataset contains the underway data from Voyage 1 1997-98 (WANDER) of the Aurora Australis. This was a manned marine science cruise. This is the first AA voyage to use the new Java-based NOODLES logging system. See the Marine Science Support Data Quality and Programmer's Reports at the Related URL section.

CTD and XBT data were also obtained on this voyage.

Quality

Where data for a particular sensor do not exist for a particular time, the last known value is used unless the sensor has been disabled or has encountered an error. For example, some sensors only record data every minute, but the resolution for the underway dataset is 10 seconds, so the same value will be used 6 times a minute. No averages are taken for sensors that capture data at a rate other than every 10 seconds. Instead, each record will be a snapshot of each sensor at that time.
