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

Dataset includes locations of sampling sites for ASAC project 40 on voyage 6 of the Aurora Australis in the 2007/2008 season. Samples were collected between March and April of 2008. The dataset also contains information on chlorophyll, carotenoids, coccolithophorids and species identification and counts.

Four datasets are currently included in this download - a CTD filtration log, an HPLC filtration log, a CHEMTAX file and a Pigments file.

Public Summary from the project:

This program aims to determine the role of single celled plants, animals, bacteria and viruses in Antarctic waters. We quantify their vital role as food for other organisms, their potential influence in moderating global climate change through absorption of CO2 and production of DMS, and determine their response to effect of climate change.
