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 is a record of the data in the ANARE Research Notes 78: Temperature-density, temperature-conductivity and conductivity-density relationships for marine-derived saline lake waters. Authors: John A.E. Gibson, John M. Ferris and Harry R. Burton.

Abstract per ANARE 78: Equations, determined using water samples from marine-derived saline lakes in Vestfold Hills, Antarctica, relating sigma T [=(density-1000) kg/m^3 at temperature between -15 degrees C and 40 degrees C to sigma 20, electrical conductivity at temperatures from -15 degrees C to 20 degrees C to conductivity at 0 degrees C, and sigma 20 to electrical conductivity at 0 degrees C are given. These relationships allow in situ sigma T to be calculated from in situ electrical conductivity and temperature data.

Fields in this data set are:

Sample Source (ie Lake Name and Depth)
sigma 20 and quadratic coefficients
Temperature
Comparison of sigma T using temperature-density relationships
Comparison of conductivities calculated
