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

Here we provide a revised version of the ACBRs, reflecting updates in underlying spatial layers, together with the results of new analysis justifying the inclusion of a 16th bioregion. This updated version now covers all ice-free areas of Antarctica.
