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

A total of 67 diatom species were found from the surface sediment of 33 lakes in the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica. Water chemistry (including salinity, nutrients and major ions) is available for each of the 33 lakes sampled.

Data are available in two separate spreadsheets - one for water chemistry, and one for water species.
