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).

Quality

The original datasheet was reformatted to fit IPT Biodiversity.AQ standard. The new datasheet "DavisStationStableIsotopes.csv" provides the dataset ID, event ID, recordNumber, occurrenceID, eventDate, decimalLatitude, decimalLongitude, continent, occurrenceStatus, basisOfRecord. The taxonomical organisation is provided to the lowest taxonomical rank that could be determined, after matched in WoRMS (World Register of Marine Species).
