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

The data is all contained within an Access database. This is the historical data for the Remediation Project from 2009 up until the end of 2016.The database contains some unprocessed data from the 2016-17 field season so this will likely be updated in future revisions/submissions of this database.
In terms of locality, this covers Macquarie Island, Casey Station (biopiles, fuel spill sites), Davis and Lake Dingle.

Tables/Data included:
Sampling metadata (barcodes, collector, season, location, etc.)
Laboratory batch information (details of analysis events in lab)
Hydrocarbon (TPH) in soils
Hydrocarbon (TPH) in water
Nutrients in soils
Nutrients in water
Volatile compounds (VOC) in soils
Volatile compounds (VOC) in water
Sample weights and volumes
Sample moisture levels
Soil grain size
QAQC analysis of the above data
Minor analysis on invertebrates

The database includes some data collected for another project in addition to AAS 4036. For example, AAS 4029.
The database includes barcodes which were allocated to the data. Each barcode is linked to an AAS project. However, only one barcode could be allocated to any given data even if it was collected for more than one project.
