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 data from Voyage 1 1993-94 of the Aurora Australis. The observations were taken from around Heard Island between August and September 1993. The data contains temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen and nutrient data from a CTD survey and the results from various pelagic fish trawl surveys. The major species were Champsocephalus gunnari, Champsocephalus rhinoceratus, Lepidonotoften squamifrons and Dissostichus eleginoides. Numbers, species identity, guts and gonad data were obtained. This is a subset of the data for the whole voyage.
