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).
The data set consists of the FlowCAM vignette images and associated files of particles (e.g. protists, zooplankton, inorganic particles) sampled during the K-AXIS (Kerguelen Axis) cruise (Aurora Australis Voyage 3, 2016) from the CTD rosette and underway seawater line. All images selected as non-identified or unwanted particles have been removed from this clean dataset. Calibration and particle library (identified objects) are also included. The "KAXIS_FlowCAM_logsheet.xlsx" file describes all sampling information.
Describe the spatio-temporal variations of the protist community structure during the K-AXIS voyage.
